Learning from a school bus crossing tragedy


Hunter Pitt, a 6-year-old in Callaway County, Mo., was killed in January 2011 when his school bus ran over him as he crossed in front. The boy’s parents later worked with the Missouri Association for Pupil Transportation, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and other state organizations to create this video, which explains the accident and emphasizes the importance of school bus drivers staying focused, particularly when children are loading and unloading.
