A bus driver was honored today for saving his students earlier this year.

On Jan. 9, Ed Gross' bus stopped on the train tracks in Lindenhurst. Unable to move the bus, he managed to get all 35 middle school students off to safety.

A student says Gross calmly stayed on the bus until every student was off. News 12 is told that strangers then helped to move the bus off of the tracks.
