Transcript for Indiana school district to move bus stop after car accident kills 3 siblings
deadly and horrific school bus accident in Indiana. A young woman, 24, in a pickup truck hitting four children, killing three members of the same family. Tonight, new images of a witness walking up to the scene right afterward, and we now know what the driver of the truck is now saying. We do know she had three children in the car with her. ABC's Alex Perez is right there again tonight. Reporter: Tonight, our first look at those chaotic moments in Rochester, Indiana. First responders on the scene, the hood of the pickup that hit the children, mangled. I knew it. I knew I heard the school bus. Reporter: Horrified neighbors rushing outside after hearing the crash that killed twin brothers Xzavier and mason ingle and their sister Alivia while walking to their school bus. The driver of that pickup truck, Alyssa shepherd, charged with three counts of reckless homicide. She told investigators she doesn't normally take this road. She had three kids in the backseat and saw flashing lights, but by the time she realized it was a school bus, it was too late. Tonight, growing questions about the safety of that bus stop. The siblings' uncle says the family had contacted the district in the past about moving the stop away from the road. There's plenty of room for the school bus to pull in and pick up these kids, instead of asking them to walk across the highway with people doing 50, 60 miles an hour. Reporter: The children were crossing this busy road, where the speed limit on this stretch is 45 miles per hour. A 2018 national survey of school bus drivers found that on a single day, nearly 84,000 vehicles passed their buses illegally. Just today, in Lee county, Mississippi, another child struck and injured while getting on the bus. David, school officials announced they will be moving that bus stop, instead of stopping on this busy road, it will now wind its way through the side streets of this neighborhood. David? Alex Perez with us again tonight. Alex, thank you.
