5-Year-Old Girl Struck by a School Bus Driver

Diamond Kelley5 months ago

Gavriel Surkis, school bus driver, reportedly struck a young child with his bus and continued with his route through Monsey, New York.

Details of the Monsey School Bus Accident

According to WEAU, authorities announced that a 5-year-old girl was stricken down by a school bus arm safety rail after running into a street in Monsey, New York. The driver then proceeded to drive past the young child who fortunately avoided the wheels of the bus and was positioned directly beneath the undercarriage of the bus.

A woman nearby who witnessed the incident was able to safely secure the child on the sidewalk. The young girl was then transported to a hospital where she barely received any injuries besides minor facial scratches.

The bus driver, Surkis, was cited and ticketed for negligence in safety measures. Child Protective Services were immediately notified of the incident.
