Student from Highland Park (Mich.) district never got to his Detroit destination.

Highland Park (Mich.) School board officials say a bus transportation company has fired a bus driver and aide after a 10-year-old special needs student was left on a school bus all day last week. School officials say the child was picked up as usual by an ABC Student Transportation driver to be taken to Birney Elementary School in Detroit. Later that day, the bus aide discovered the boy was not at school for pickup and told his family and school officials he'd been mistakenly dropped at a different school. The next day, the child told his mother he'd fallen asleep on the bus.
