Transcript for Georgia student has close call as truck nearly hits her at bus stop
This video is rattling, a driver facing charges this morning after that close call at a bus stop, that student managing to narrowly avoid potentially serious injuries. As the school year begins, really a harrowing reminder of a common problem and ABC's Zachary kiesch has more. Zachary, good morning. Reporter: Dan, good morning to you. We've been all behind a bus with things to do and people to see but you got to remain stopped for the stop sign is out. This morning, an alert to parents and kids as a new school year starts. Dramatic new video released in Georgia, watch as this truck speeds by a school bus crossing almost hitting that student. The bus driver gets the 15-year-old student's attention by repeatedly honking the horn. This morning, the county sheriff is praising her actions. Reporter: This man was arrested and includes several charges. All I had to do was honk the horn. If I saw her get hit, it would have been a traumatic experience for all of us. Reporter: This just days after a terrifying close call in Houston when this car almost hit a young girl. Stop! Reporter: Her mother sharing this video as a warning to other parents. And in Montgomery county, Maryland, police released several videos highlighting the dangers of failing to stop. This student was struck by a car thrown on the hood, incredibly she survives. Over 95,000 vehicles passed their buses illegally on a single day. Safety experts says everyone can be more aware. When the red lights start flashing on a school bus, it's not a drill -- stop. And be aware of the fact that there will be small children generally on the road and in harm's way. Regardless if you're behind the bus or driving in the opposite direction you got to stop, guys. A great reminder. Thank you, Zachary. We keep seeing this happening over and over again. Zach, thank you.
