State officials have suspended a suburban Detroit child care center's license after a child was left unattended on a cold bus for 90 minutes.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs suspended the Jade Child Development Center's license, and it's now seeking to revoke the Garden City business' license.

MLive.com reports that the state agency found that the child was injured by being left unattended on a bus for about 90 minutes in cold weather.

The agency took the action after an investigation found violations of the Child Care Organizations Act and other rules that outline appropriate care and supervision of children.

The Jade Child Development Center can appeal the suspension. The case has been forwarded to the Michigan Administrative Hearing System for a hearing date.
