A 6th grader is being hailed for their honesty after they saved a young college student from having to open his wallet for unintentional car damage.
Andrew Sipowicz, who is a senior student at Canisius College, was upset when he approached his car earlier this week and found that another vehicle had damaged his 2012 Ford Mustang.
But his mood changed when he found a note tucked under the windshield.
The note was written by a sixth grader from Houghton Academy in Buffalo, New York. The message detailed how the student had seen their school bus driver trying to pull out into the road when she hit Sipowicz’s car and fled the scene.
The student saw the incident unfold and later returned to the Mustang to leave the note with the bus number.
To Sipowicz’s amusement, the youngster even added a little drawing of a school bus with children yelling at each other in the back.
Sipowicz took a photo of the note and the damage to the car so he could post them to social media and praise the mystery student for their honesty.

“Shoutout to the anonymous 6th grader for saving me a couple thousand (Bus not drawn to scale),” wrote Sipowicz. The photos later ended up being shared hundreds of thousands of times.
Sipowicz says that he has since been in touch with the school bus company to initiate the insurance process. The company will reportedly be paying for the car’s repairs and giving Sipowicz a loaner car while his Mustang is in the shop.
