BALLWIN, Mo. — Video shows a motorist here driving onto the front lawn of a home in a residential neighborhood to get around a stopped school bus and a car that stopped for the bus.
On Wednesday at about 8:25 a.m., footage captured by a video camera on the side of the Parkway School District bus shows the bus slowing to a stop and its stop arm extending, with a red light flashing. One car stops for the bus. Then the car driving behind that car swerves to the right to bypass it and veers onto the lawn and sidewalk, passing a car parked on the street and the bus.
Parkway School District posted the video on its Facebook page and included a message saying that the neighborhood where the incident occurred is near Henry Elementary School. The message also asked for readers to contact the Ballwin Police Department with any information on the incident. The police department also posted the video on its Facebook page.
The district's message also pointed out that stop-arm running incidents are “real and dangerous,” and asked readers “Please, please don’t ever do this!”
