Impatient New York motorist nearly mows down schoolchildren
NEW YORK (AP) - Driver impatience on New York City streets at times knows no limits. In one case, it meant flooring the gas pedal and nearly mowing down a group of Brooklyn schoolchildren.
A motorist stuck behind a stopped school bus earlier this week drove onto a sidewalk, startling the frightened children who scattered out of the way.
A video camera on the Brooklyn street captured the incident Thursday outside a yeshiva in the Borough Park neighborhood.
New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who represents Borough Park, told WABC -TV that passing the school bus could have resulted in the driver committing murder.
He says he hopes the video footage showing the car's license plate will lead to an arrest.
