Early Wednesday morning, a school bus in Harrison County was hit by a car.
Around 7:00 Wednesday morning the bus was driving toward route 19 when it was struck. Stephen Cain, 20, was driving the car and lost control. Luckily no one was hurt, but there were 12 children in the bus when the accident happened. Parents and another school bus came to take the kids safety to school.
This incident got 5 News thinking. What can be done to make sure this doesn't happen again? People just need to be a little more cautious. There was a safety meeting in Harrison County where officials were able to address this incident.
"We need to drive with caution. Especially during those hours from 6:30 until 8 and around 2 until 3. We need to be cognizant that they're traveling and we need to give them the right of way. Watch out for them. Don't be in any kind of a rush. When the lights come on stop, wait for the kids to get on and off, and go on," said Roger Diaz, President of the Harrison County Emergency Ambulance Authority.
Officials were congratulated at the meeting for their constant drive to improve.
