    If she heads to the back of the bus; the driver would think she is on the curb and is safe. Yes; there are many careless drivers out there. But children are very carefree! Good that the driver stopped; many don’t!

    No charges? Isn’t there supposed to be a stop sign that the driver extends until all of the kids are across the street? I understand she ran BEHIND the bus but if all the cars were stopped because the bus had the stop sign out, how would she NOT be seen? The driver of the bus or car should be responsible for this.

    I hope the little girl will make a full recovery. My Prayers to her.
