A woman parents trust to shepherd their kids safely to and from school couldn't be trusted to do the same with one of her own.

Police are busy processing charges against Sandra Daniel, a 47-year-old Cleveland school bus driver, after Daniel wrecked her car while under the influence and with her unrestrained 1-year-old granddaughter in the back seat.

Around 3:50 a.m. Sunday morning, Daniel was driving on West 95th St. when her Mitsubishi Eclipse hit a parked car, crashed into another vehicle, and ended up on its side.

Her granddaughter was unrestrained in the backseat; the PD reports that Daniel had been cited twice before for failing to use child restraints.

The boozy bus driver refused to take a breath test when police arrived and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. She is also facing charged of child endangering.

The child was taken to Metro with minor injuries.
