At 6:23 p.m. on May 15, 2015, the State Police Barracks in Yarmouth received a call from a concerned mother. The woman informed Trooper Jeffrey McCarthy that her daughter, a high school student at the Cape Cod Regional Technical High School in Harwich, had called her from the bus she was on. She went on to explain that her daughter would be getting off the bus at the next stop because she felt the bus driver was operating in an unsafe manner. Trooper McCarthy, the desk officer, immediately put the information out to State Police patrols and the Barnstable Police Department. The bus was located by Trooper Seth Peterson in the Burger King Parking Lot on Route 6 westbound. Trooper Peterson stopped the bus, which still contained 5 student passengers, before it could reenter Route 6.
