GRAHAM, Washington (KOMO) – Heart-stopping video from a security camera shows a driver coming within inches of mowing down three school children in Washington State.
Their mothers watched in shock.
“My kids. They were do close to being taken away from me. It’s really, really hard to watch,” said Lisa Razo, mother.
Nobody got hurt, but 5-year-old Charity Wolfe says it sure felt like something touched her.
“Cause it kind of ran over my shoe a little.”
The onboard surveillance system captures the near miss from three separate angles.
Witnesses say the SUV drove around several other vehicles stopped behind the bus.
“And when we knew our kids were okay the anger set in, I took off running, I was part way down this hill after her,” said Brandy Wheeler, mother.
Wheeler’s 10-year-old son Jerry is one of the kids along Lisa Razo’s 5 and 9-year-old daughers
“They were just shell-shocked. So were we. Her son was crying,” said Razo.
It happened too fast for anybody to get a license plate.
School district officials say all lights and signs on the bus were working, and the bus driver did everything by the book.
