RICHMOND, Texas (KTRK) -- Officials issued a warning about back to school safety after a driver was caught on dashcam video speeding past a stopped school bus, ignoring its stop sign.

The video was captured in the Rivers Edge area in Richmond on Aug. 22.

The dashcam video shows a car stopped behind a school bus in the neighborhood. Meanwhile, a white SUV speeds around the stopped cars and bus.

Fortunately, Fort Bend County Precinct 1 Constable Chad Norvell said no students were hurt.

"An absolutely unacceptable start to the school year," Norvell said in a social media post.
