Top 15 Most Scary School Bus Videos

Top 15 Most Scary School Bus Videos


15. Near Miss
What happens on a bus can be terrifying…but what about before students even board? Footage of near misses by passing cars as
students cross the street to board buses have arisen across Canada and the US. Here is just one of those incidents. The children, carefree and ready for school,
cross a lane to board, when suddenly, out of nowhere, a white car speeds past, nearly
taking their lives. The car flew through the inside lane of the
bus, which was waiting with its doors open to collect the students. If it had sped threw a second sooner, everyone’s
lives could have changed in the blink of an eye. All just to get to work five seconds sooner? But is such a risk worth taking? Absolutely not. 14. The Hero
Hero middle schooler, Jeremy Wuitschick, took charge when his school bus driver passed out
while driving. The driver had started waving his arms and
couldn’t breathe and, as the bus swerved, he went unconscious. The seventh grader took the wheel and was
able to steer the bus to safety, keeping those on the road, and his fifteen other fellow
students, free from harm. When the bus pulled to a stop at the side
of the road, he took the keys out of the ignition. Meanwhile, the police had already been notified
of the school bus swerving across the road, so they showed up to the scene to find Jeremy
had stopped the bus near their destination school. John McCrossin, a school staff member who’d
been driving past, also managed to administer CPR to the bus driver, who had suffered from
a heart-related problem. While folks lined up to hail Jeremy as a hero,
he said everything happened so quickly, and he was “just acting on instinct.” But let’s not be modest. A hero is a hero. 13. On the Hood
Another man attempted to take over a school bus in Baltimore, but this time the bus driver
was not having it. The man said that someone aboard the bus had
thrown a bottle that hit his vehicle. Several witnesses also said that the man then
tried to stop the school bus by banging on the doors and trying to climb on board. When the driver wouldn’t let the man inside,
the angry man jumped on the hood of the bus as it started to drive away, still directing
the driver to open the door. The cellphone footage was captured by a student
aboard the bus. Leverne Doran was later arrested without incident
and then released from custody. It’s unclear if a bottle actually had done
damage to his vehicle. 12. Rollover
When a school bus rolled over in Harris County, rumors quickly spread that a student had been
trapped inside the bus during the incident. But as the school district reported, that
wasn’t the case. However, the bus driver and fourteen students
out of the fifty who were on board were all taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries,
none of which were life-threatening. Still, the rollover footage is quite dramatic
to watch. The bus driver is seen swerving out of the
way of an oncoming vehicle and taking a turn into a nearby ditch. Superintendent Keith Moore said “The driver
was very shaken up,”. As I’m sure, were the students, most of
whom were picked up by their parents after the wreck. While the incident must have been terrifying
for all those involved, this could have ended much worse. 11. Bus Driver Flips Out
In this video, filmed in 2005, a school bus driver is heard telling the kids on board
to face forward. Apparently, some of the boys didn’t listen. When the bus driver tells one up in front
to turn around, using some bad language, one of the boys in the back pipes up, “Watch
your mouth!” he says. The scene devolves from there. The bus driver first calls a deputy to Cleveland
Circle. Really, he should have just waited for the
deputy to arrive. Instead, he heads toward the back of the bus,
when one of the boys curses at him. He then is seen man-handling the kid pushing
him first into a seat and then down the aisle, while another boy screams, “Get off him!” The driver returns to the front of the bus. But the same boy confronts the driver again,
giving him a shove. No more information could be found about the
repercussions of this incident – for the bus driver or the kids – if there were any. But one thing’s for sure, whether those
boys provoked the driver or not, this was no way to handle it. 10. Hijacking
Imagine that you were a parent of a school-aged student, and you just found out your child’s
school bus had been hijacked by a man wielding a knife. That’s what happened in Arkansas, when 22-year-old
Nicholas Miller demanded a car from a woman in Jacksonville. When she “did not have one to give,” Miller
abandoned pursuit of the woman after spotting the school bus which had stopped nearby. He boarded the bus and hijacked the driver’s
seat with 11 elementary school students on board. The woman phoned the police to inform them
of the incident. Once they’d found the school bus in question,
they began their pursuit, as can be seen in this video. Recorded by Kelsey Eggers, the cellphone video
shows the bus being tailed by nearly a dozen police cars, all with flashing lights, down
a two-lane road. The chase ran about ten miles, which is when
the police managed to get the suspect to stop the bus, and they took him into custody. Miller seemed to be suffering psychological
trauma or paranoia. He told authorities he’d hijacked the bus,
because he was being chased. Although no one on the bus was hurt, it must
have been twenty minutes of trauma for all on board. 9. On the Way to School
This is another heart-stopper. As a seven-year-old boy in Gilford, New Hampshire
attempts to cross the street and climb aboard his school bus, a car comes flying through
and nearly ends his life. Many of us have seen these types of drivers. The kind that don’t care about anyone else’s
safety…not even their own, it seems. But when something that’s as close a call
as this is caught on video, it reminds you of just how precious life is. At the time the video was captured, Gilford
police were attempting to find the car’s driver, but it’s unclear if they ever did,
or if that driver received any repercussions for their nearly fatal impatience. 8. Tossed Off
While there have been plenty of bus drivers on this list that were threatening, this one
certainly took things too far. When a thirteen-year-old student was acting
up on the bus, the driver slammed on the brakes, swung open the door, threw the kid’s backpack
outside, and kicked him off. The boy then had to walk home ten blocks. The footage shown was taped by a student on
his phone. It shows the angry exchange between the bus
driver and the boy in question. It also shows the kids shouting in defense
of the boy, screaming, “You can’t do that!” Another video, taken by the bus driver, served
as his defense. The kid had struck another child on the other
side of the aisle and then threatened the bus driver. Additionally, another thirteen-year-old had
smacked the driver in the head with his hockey bag, knocking his glasses off, as he disembarked. The incident received both support and anger
from parents, with some saying that the driver had done what he needed to do, while others
thought there was no justification for kicking a student off the bus. Cunningham Transport Ltd. removed him from
the division’s routes but didn’t fire him. A bus monitor was also placed on this route,
while the two boys in question were suspended from riding the bus for a week. What do you think? Was the bus driver in the wrong here? 7. No Seatbelt
Here’s one reason to always wear your seatbelt. When this 73-year-old bus driver, Jack Thomas
of Indianapolis, took a turn, it turned out that turn was too topsy-turvy to take. And he wasn’t wearing his seatbelt. Luckily, no kids were on board the bus at
this time, as Thomas quickly loses control of the large vehicle, attempting to hang onto
the steering wheel for dear life, as he falls out of his seat. The bus plows through a fence, into trees,
and knocks into a play set. Then, at last, it slams into a garage, while
the bus driver relinquishes the wheel and falls down the steps of the bus. Although, surprisingly, no one was injured
in the incident, Thomas was cited for not following the seatbelt law. 6. When Buses Collide
A scary chain-reaction happened when a school bus collided with another school bus and a
truck in Tacoma Public School District. The incident occurred in 2013 on State Route
509 in Tacoma. Thankfully, the buses were empty of children
at the time of the incident, and everyone was alright. The bus driver drove into a pickup and a second
bus before jerking to a halt, according to Washington State Patrol Troopers. The bus driver who caused the incident was
ticketed for negligent driving. And Tacoma Public School officials further
investigated the matter, as the video appeared to show the driver was wearing her seatbelt
improperly, with only her lap secured, and the shoulder strap not in use. Whether the driver was suspended or terminated
is unclear. But what is clear? Always wear a seatbelt the way it’s meant
to be worn. 5. Trapped on a Bus
A school bus driver in El Mirage, Arizona school district had enough. When kids on his bus were misbehaving, he
stood up to scream at them and refused to let them disembark. The dash cam on the bus caught the entire
terrifying event on video. “I’m not letting anybody off until you
listen to what I have to say,” the driver said in the video. “The longer we stay here, the more your
parents are going to be getting upset – and not at me, they’re going to be getting upset
with you.” Parents waited outside, distraught about what
was going on inside of the school bus. One parent attempted to pry open the bus doors,
while another pounded on the side of the bus. But the bus driver wasn’t giving in to the
kids or their parents. In fact, he got back in the driver’s seat
and drove off, not letting any of the children go. Parents, fearing for their children’s lives,
called police. The driver had brought them back to school,
and police were there to arrest him. The driver was placed on administrative leave,
but later resigned. 4. Mother Bear
Bus driver incidents can be scary…but mother attacks can put people in the hospital. One mother in Westwood near Cincinnati gave
a local school bus driver some major injuries. The bus driver, Deamber Martin, thought it
was just her average day. 28-year-old mother, Kiesha Shannon, probably
did too, as she was dropping her daughter off at the bus stop that morning. The school bus must stay on a strict schedule,
so Martin warned Shannon that she was about to leave, whether her daughter was aboard
the bus or not. She said she couldn’t wait around for her. But Shannon called her daughter back to her
car for a kiss goodbye that morning, and Martin pulled away for the already scheduled program. Instead of telling her daughter to get back
in the car and taking her to school herself, Shannon drove in front of the bus, parked,
and blocked it in. Then she got out of her vehicle, pried the
school doors open, and screamed in Martin’s face. It’s unclear who attacks first in the video
but, as frightened children aboard the school bus look on. Martin said Shannon tried to bite her ear
off, smother her, and puncture her eye. Shannon spit on her and scratched her face,
the injuries of which were treated at a local hospital. The mother bear was arrested. People in the neighborhood were surprised
that this could happen on their normally quiet, peaceful street of Mustang Drive. I guess the key take-away is if it can happen
here, it can happen anywhere… 3. School Bus Fire
Not one, but two bus engines burst into flames in the span of a single month in North Carolina. This is footage of one of these fires. The buses in question were both FS65 Thomas
Built Buses with CAT 3126 engines. After an investigation, Charlotte-Mecklenburg
Schools put out a statement, saying that the wiring components in the engine compartment
caused the two fires. According to the video’s poster, the fast-thinking
bus driver was able to get all the kids out of the bus safely. And hopefully the school district has followed
up on this fiery issue. 2. Corporal Punishment
When a bus driver in Dallas County was tasked with delivering kids safely to their middle
school, she didn’t deliver. Instead, Janet Pitts ended up choking one
of the students on board. And it was all caught on video. Xavier, a bipolar mentally-challenged student
aboard Pitts’ bus, began acting out as she drove. Normally, a monitor would be aboard the bus
to help the driver manage the passengers. However, on this day in January, there was
no monitor, which meant Xavier was free to roam about the bus and fling obscenities at
other students and the driver. Pitts, who was attempting to be attentive
to her task at hand – driving – also tried to control the situation with Xavier…albeit
in a terrible manner. She told the boy she’d stop the bus to “come
get you” and even said she’d beat him. And she did eventually stop the bus. What happened next was worse than you can
imagine. Pitts choked the young boy in the back of
the bus. She even said so when she returned to the
driver’s seat. Xavier’s family was never alerted to the
incident. They only found out when informed by News
8. Claudia Nava, Xavier’s mother, had reported
scratches on her son the same week of the incident. Although Pitts was terminated, she was reinstated
by the board after an appeal. But she resigned after the family discovered
what had happened with Xavier. Before we get to number 1, my name is Chills

What happens when you have a special needs child who’s being mistreated? One family from Vacaville Unified School District
took matters into their own hands and sued them. When their 8-year-old daughter’s bus driver,
Kim Klopson, pulled up outside of Browns Valley Elementary, she yanked the girl out of her
seat. Klopson is seen in the video leering over
the child, taunting her. The girl, crying and screaming, stumbles into
the bus aisle, while Klopson grabs her by her sweater, pulling her to her feet, and
scolding her. The parents of the girl were horrified by
what they’d seen in the surveillance video. The 8-year-old had allegedly blocked the aisle,
not letting another student through, which is when Klopson stepped in. The footage at this point is atrocious to
watch, as the woman pulls the girl by her sweater, throwing her on a seat at one point
and then into the aisle. As she continues to argue with the girl, she
pulls on her clothing to lift her, while the girl continues to scream. And Klopson continues to taunt her. After getting the girl off the bus, Klopson
tells others outside that she didn’t hurt her. And it sounds like this is not the first time
Klopson mistreated a child. In the video footage, she tells the paraeducator,
“We did this with another little guy that didn’t want to ride the bus.” The driver has since been let go.
