STAFFORD, Conn. (AP) – Police and the Connecticut Department of Children and Families are investigating after a preschooler was left on a school bus in Stafford.

Police said the child was picked up Monday for a preschool session but fell asleep on the bus and never made it to the West Stafford School.

After the child was reported absent, school officials contacted the bus company, which in turn called the driver at home.

The driver, who was allowed to take the bus home between trips, found the child asleep and unhurt on the bus.

State police say charges are pending.
