    A mother in Chattanooga whose daughter died in a fatal school bus accident Monday says she repeatedly complained about the bus driver responsible, NBC News reported.

    Jasmine Mateen says she complained about the bus driver to the Board of Education, the school and the bus company, Durham School Services, after her children complained about him.

    Mateen, who also had two children injured in the accident, said she reminded the school that she complained about the driver when they called her Tuesday.

    "I've been calling y'all since August," Mateen said she told them. "I said, 'Now y'all doing what y'all supposed to been doing now that it's too late ... Y'all doing what y'all supposed to be doing, but my baby laying in a cold freezer.'"

    The bus driver, Johnthony Walker, 24, was charged with vehicular homicide, reckless endangerment and reckless driving following Monday’s accident.
