Sixth grader’s adorable note to stranger about a school bus hitting his car wins Twitter

A sixth grader is winning social media thanks to an anonymous letter she wrote to a stranger about how a school bus hit and damaged his car. The car owner gave a special shout out to the little girl on Twitter and posted her note along with it. The tweet has gone crazy viral with over 8.9 lakh ‘likes' and more than 1.9 lakh retweets in a little over a day.

Andrew Sipowicz, a senior at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, noticed his red Ford Mustang had been left damaged on the driver's side on November 19. Thankfully, he didn't have to wait very long to figure out what happened to his car - he found the note left by the sixth grader detailing the entire incident.

"If your wondering what happen to your car. Bus: 449 hit your car. It stops here everyday to drop me off," says the note. The child goes on to explain what exactly had happened and even drew a picture of the bus complete with the driver and students inside.

"Shoutout to the anonymous 6th grader for saving me a couple thousand," Sipowicz says in his viral tweet.

According to The Buffalo News, Sipowicz got in touch with First Student, the company that owns and operates the city school buses in Buffalo. They have agreed to cover the damages done to the car along with providing Sipowicz with a rental until his car is repaired. The company is still investigating the incident.

Meanwhile, Sipowicz tweeted that he managed to find the child who helped him.

Several people on Twitter have shared their thoughts about this incident and the note.

"Oh oh, the bus driver is in trouble. She thinks she's hitting and running if only she knew that her passenger was a future detective and a crime solver," says one Twitter user. "What a wonderful future leader. And kudos to her parents," says another.
