“I decided to take a picture of the sunrise this morning” but instead, Charlyn Harris ended up snapping a photo of a big yellow school bus in the middle of her backyard. The bus had no passengers — and no driver.

“It scared me to death” says Harris.

Her home is adjacent to the Durham Bus Service off of Richardson Dr. in Auburn. CHP says the bus was being prepped for a field trip, but, when the parking break was not set, it started rolling.

The bus caused damage to two neighboring fences. Durham told FOX40 that its insurance provider will cover all costs for the damages the bus caused.

The company also says the driver who last used the bus is on administrative leave, pending an investigation. No one was hurt.
