YPSILANTI, Mich. (WXYZ) — A parent of a student at Lincoln High School in Ypsilanti is telling 7 Action News his son was the victim of a violent attack last week on his way to school.

The parent says his son was punched by another student, and his injuries left him unconscious and hospitalized.

Furthermore, the parent says the bus driver continued riding around without immediately contacting police. The Superintendent for the district disputes that claim, and tells us that law enforcement was promptly notified.
