I was in the second car behind the bus and saw the whole thing. It was horrific!! The driver of the car that struck her didn't even slow down prior to hitting her. The victim was thrown approxiamtely 40 feet and ended up next to the car immediately behind the bus and just ahead of where I was stopped. The bus was fully stopped with lights flashing. I hope the girl is going to have a full recovery, but I have no doubt her injuries are quite serious given the violence of the impact. Wow. Not Good.

This is why anyone over 75 should be required to take more exams to ensure this from continuing to happen
