Video: Driver ignores school bus flashing stop sign while boy crosses street

Hampshire County

A Worthington man is lucky his son didn’t get hurt after a car drove right past a school bus with its flashing lights on.

Security video from Dean Cleveland’s home in Worthington shows his son waiting for the bus at the end of the driveway.

The bus pulls up with its flashing lights and then a car came by from the left side of your screen and passed the bus. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

“My wife just let my son out to wait for the bus at the bus stop,” Cleveland told 22News. “And when the bus came, she wasn’t watching. She wasn’t paying attention and all of a sudden, she heard the bus horn blowing, and she saw a black Chevy pickup truck drive by with the lights fully lit.”

Cleveland said the bus company has changed the bus route so his son can get picked up on the same side of the street as their house instead of having to cross the street.

But this is just another example of making sure you stop when a school bus has its flashing lights on.
