HOUSTON — A woman almost saw her daughter get hit by a car as the little girl got off the bus on the first day of school.
Josephine Kirk-Taylor was documenting the end of Melina's first day of kindergarten.
Instead, the bus stopped on the opposite side and Melina had to cross the street, KTRK reported.
At the same time, a driver didn't heed the bus' stop sign and flashing lights, speeding past the stopped school bus, according to KHOU.
Kirk-Taylor can be heard on the video frantically telling her daughter to stop.
Despite having a clear video of the car's license plate, police are unable to do anything about it.
Houston Police, according to Kirk-Taylor, said they don't know who was driving the car at the time and they normally have to see the incident in person to be able to issue a citation, KHOU reported.
It is illegal to pass a stopped school bus when its red lights are flashing or its stop sign is extended.
