Bus driver shoved 5-year-old in Seneca Falls

A Seneca Falls Central School District bus driver has been arrested on harassment and child endangerment charges after an incident earlier this month.

On Friday, October 22 the Seneca Falls Police Department arrested David P. Crolick, 60, of Waterloo after allegedly shoving the young child.

It happened Thursday, October 7 when the Seneca Falls Central School District contacted their School Resource Officer after receiving a complaint that Crolick became physical with a student while on the school bus.

During the investigation, police learned that Crolick, who was employed by the school district as a bus driver, had physically pushed a 5-year old student causing his head to strike the window of the bus. He was taken into custody for second-degree harassment and endangering the welfare of a child.

The child sustained a minor injury to his ear during the incident, but did not require any medical attention.
