San Angelo, TX news reports stated that an 11-year old girl was hit and injured by a car after she had exited her school bus at about 7:33 a.m. on October 30, 2012. The girl was taken to a hospital and was not listed as a patient as of October 31, according to the news sources.
Scene of the Accident
The accident happened at Roosevelt Avenue and Buchanan, where a northbound car hit her. The school bus had some flashing warning lights activated, but specific details were not given in the accident reports.
Recently some cities, like Dallas, have started installing cameras on the stop signs that open when a school bus comes to a complete stop. There have been several incidents where people are not coming to a complete stop and instead are driving around the school bus. This puts children who are attempting to board or leave the school bus in serious danger.
These cameras will record cars around the school bus every time the bus comes to stop and the stop sign on the side of the bus is opened. Drivers who are caught on video driving around the bus will be sent a citation in the mail. Hopefully, by getting the word out that many school buses are equipped with cameras will deter drivers from breaking the law and putting children’s lives at risk.
