Bus driver takes wrong bus on field trip

Students aboard a bus headed to Ridgefield Park High School were surprised when they learned that they would be taking an unplanned field trip.

Rather than going to school, the bus driver headed to Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson.

A student aboard the bus told News 12 New Jersey via cell phone, the bus driver had mistaken the group for another bus load of middle school students scheduled for the field trip.

School officials confirm that the bus driver had mistakenly taken the wrong bus load of kids on the trip.

Ridgefield Park police met the bus on the New Jersey Turnpike and escorted it to the high school.
