NORWICH, N.Y. -- There are now more reasons why you should never pass a school bus when the stop arm is out and the red lights are flashing. All this happened on April 26, along State Route 12 in Norwich.
It was quick-thinking on bus driver Samantha Call's part for preventing a tragedy. She grabs a student as he's leaving the bus, and pulls him back just in time as a car zooms past the bus.
Norwich Central School's Transportation Supervisor William Loomis said in a statement:
"Samantha did an outstanding job, all of our drivers undergo continuous training so they're prepared to handle situations like this. We hope this video helps everyone to realize the dangers of passing a stopped school bus."
