News 25 spoke to one of the children on board who tells us a little more of how the accident happened. Fifth grader Maliki Gedaria said, “Well, the bus was coming down the street and the car was speeding and didn’t stop at the stop sign and it just ran right past and the bus hit it and it ran right into our yard. I was kind of shocked and a little spooked.”
