LOUISVILLE , KY — A disturbing sight caught on surveillance video, a young girl dragged by her school bus. The child, a 5 or 6 year old was getting off the bus when her backpack got stuck in the door.
Police said the bus dragged the child about 100 feet, but neighbors described it as the distance of at least a football field.
“It was amazing. I couldn’t believe it, her bouncing around in that door, all the way down the street, it was bad,” said witness Tom Carman.
The surveillance video shows a red Chevy Camaro speeding up behind the school bus. Neighbors at first thought the driver was doing something wrong, blaring the horn, but later realized they were trying to stop the bus.
Neighbors that rushed to help the child, say that she was scraped up but, “She was talking and then at the end she wanted to see her mommy, she wanted her mommy.”
Police say the child had road rash and was taken to a children’s hospital for treatment.
Jefferson County Public Schools Administrators say the incident is under investigation.
