School is back in session and the streets are even more dangerous than never for them. According to Fox 26 news, three Spring ISD high school students were hit by a car this morning while waiting for the bus. It happened very early after 6 AM this morning near old waters and Spears Road. To make matters even worse the Harris County sheriffs office says the driver didn’t even stop and render aid. All three students were taking to Houston NW. Medical Center where they contacted their parents.
As drivers we must go above and beyond, and be very diligent in looking for children and kids crossing the street and waiting for buses. A lot of people don’t realize how early they go out to the bus stop, many times it is still dark. Please make sure you are driving at a slow courteous speed and that your cell phone is completely put down. Not all children make the right decision when crossing the street or darting out in front of traffic last minute, we must help them by all working together to prevent these types of accidents from happening to our kids.
And to the person who just hit them and took off? Karma.
