(Scroll down for video) A bus driver was arrested after her young son crashed her bus.

The school bus driver of Merrimack, New Hampshire, asked her 5-year-old son to sit in the driver’s seat to help her perform a safety check on the bus.

Merrimack Police said that the 5-year-old boy was helping his mother with security checks about 8:40 a.m., while her 8-year-old son was also on the bus.

Tiffanie Brown asked her son to put on the brake lights, so she can see if they worked properly. However, the child shifted the bus into reverse, causing it to roll backwards and into an apartment building, police said.

The woman’s 8-year-old son was “hanging on the door of the bus during the incident,” police said.

Brown was arrested on charges of child neglect and reckless conduct.
