Austin PD releases video of children being hit by cars

AUSTIN, TX (KTRK) -- A disturbing video has grabbed the attention of parents after not one but two students were struck by vehicles in Austin.

The drivers who appear in the video never bother to stop for a school bus.

A video of a white truck shows the driver slam right into a child walking across the street. You can clearly see the school bus's stop sign is extended.

In the second video, a black truck was turning in front of a child in a crosswalk.

Fortunately, both students are okay.

Austin ISD police released the videos as a reminder the drivers about back to school safety.

Police say they issued 900 tickets the first week of school for drivers passing school buses.
