Authorities have arrested the man who was caught on camera nearly hitting a little girl in Houston, Texas, after speeding past a school bus in August.
Eighteen-year-old Julio Coreas was arrested and charged with reckless driving.
On Aug. 28, Josephine Kirk-Taylor was standing on the sidewalk recording a video of her 5-year-old daughter Melina as she got off the bus from her second day of kindergarten.
Kirk-Taylor could be heard on camera screaming for her daughter to stop walking across the street so she wouldn’t be hit.
“He didn’t slow down, whatsoever,” Kirk-Taylor said. “After this incident, didn’t stop to ask if my daughter was okay or anything. And that’s what hurt me the most because it could have ended very differently and you had no concern for my child.”
Luckily, the video captured the driver’s license plate as it zoomed by.
Drivers have to stop when a school bus extends its stop sign or when it turns on its flashing red lights, according to Texas law.
In Texas, breaking these laws will land you a fine up to $1,250 and, unlike other traffic tickets, it can’t be taken away with defensive driving classes.
