Dallas County Schools suspends bus driver who allegedly left at least one Cedar Hill High School student at a Burger King recently.

Marin did confirm that Dallas County Schools suspended the driver. She also said they're pulling surveillance video from the bus to further investigate because there are conflicting reports about how many students were left.
