CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A pair of motorists are facing separate citations from police for illegally passing stopped Bay Village school buses on the same day.

According to police, officers took a report on Sept. 9 at approximately 8:40 a.m. from a Bay Village City School District bus driver who said he was passed by a motorist while stopped on Osborn Road near Bracken Way.

Police reviewed video of the incident.

A 77-year-old man from Bay Village was identified and cited for passing the stopped school bus while the vehicle’s stop sign was out and flashers were on, according to investigators.

Additionally, a bus driver reported on Sept. 9 he was passed illegally by a motorist while dropping off students on Wolf Road.
