Car passing bus has close call with child; deputies warn people about bus safety

By  | 

DUNN COUNTY, Wis. (WSAW) -- A close call on a Dunn County road has the Dunn County Sheriff's Department reminding people to be alert around stopped buses.

This video posted on the department's Facebook page from a semi-driver shows a child getting off the bus. As the child is about to cross the road to get to their house, a car speeds past the bus and the child.

Deputies found and cited the driver, but say it's a good reminder that passing a school bus while stopped is illegal--and to keep an eye out for children.
