In a shocking video captured by a home surveillance camera in Louisville, Kentucky, a young girl is seen being dragged down the road by her school bus, after the straps of her backpack were apparently caught inside the doors.
A red Camaro can be seen speeding alongside the bus, trying to get the driver’s attention. After honking and trying to wave the driver down, the bus driver finally realizes what is happening and brings the bus to a stop.
Witness Esther Karschner, who saw the horrific incident, claimsÂ that the girl was dragged almost 1,000 feet down the road.
“I saw a car go flying by behind the bus real fast,” Karschner said. “Shortly after the car stopped the bus. Her bookbag was caught on the bottom of the door when she got out.Â The bus driver got out and they called the police, It wasn’t a very pretty sight.”
The little girl was taken to the hospital and treated for road rash on her legs. Her injuries were not life-threatening, and members of her family areÂ thankful because they know that the outcome to this could have been much, much worse.
