'Hero' bus driver saves kids from being struck by erratic driver

GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. – A South Carolina school bus driver is being called a hero after she prevented several children from being hit by a reckless driver Wednesday morning, according to WYFF News.

A video of the incident was shared on the Greenville County Schools Facebook page.

The post said: "Sadly, what you are about to watch is not uncommon. Greenville County drivers regularly disregard school bus stop arms. We don't often post video from our buses, but what happened this morning on Highway 418 was so shocking, we felt we must share."

Driver Marilyn Masters said it's not an uncommon occurrence. Cars speed past her stopped bus several times each month.

"Let's not let it be a horrific thing that happens before someone starts paying attention," she said.
