The bus was stopped to load passengers, lights flashing. A pickup driver swerved to pass the bus on the RIGHT side. The driver killed one little girl, and injured another. The driver is in custody, and needs to never be allowed in public again.

Staring a petition to our representatives and senators... please sign to show your support for cameras on busses to catch the millions of people who ignore the law to stop for a stopped bus.

This is the one thing I fear as a bus driver. This should never ever happen. I pray for the family and all involved. This person should never drive another motor vehicle as long as they live and should go to jail for a maximum sentence!!

This is the one thing I fear as a bus driver. We are all aware but there is so much going on during the loading and unloading process and in a split second this happens!! This should never ever happen. I pray for the family and all involved. This person should never drive another motor vehicle as long as they live and should go to jail for a maximum sentence!!
