Will the Family of Young Victim Killed in Hit and Run Accident Find Justice?

Last February, two young girls were walking together down the sidewalk. They stopped at an intersection, and pressed the pedestrian button so they could walk across the street.

School Principal Killed in Bus Accident Called a Hero

An elementary school principal was recently killed in a bus accident, but is being called a hero. When an approaching school bus jumped the curb and accelerated, the victim managed to push several young students to safety before she was struck and killed. Two students were also hit by the bus, and were transported to the hospital in serious, but not life-threatening, condition. Luckily, none of the 25 young passengers on the bus or the driver suffered injuries. Authorities are currently investigating the cause of the tragic bus accident, but have so far not reported any explanation. They did say that the bus involved only recently passed an inspection, less than a month prior to the accident.
