IRVINGTON - A family is outraged after a 4-year-old girl was left alone for hours on a school bus in Essex County yesterday morning.

Dallas was on her way to the Learn to Love Day Care Center in Irvington when she was found by a passer-by in a garage on Coit Street.

When her mother, India Rainey, received a phone call that her daughter never made it to school, she found out that her daughter had been left on her school bus after falling asleep.

Management at the Learn to Love Day Care did not comment on the incident.

Back in May, several employees were fired from the center after complaining about their pay. At the time, the owner of a nearby check-cashing business claimed Learn to Love bounced checks in excess of $10,000.

Irvington police are investigating the incident.
