It doesn't say in this article that the bus was stopped, and in fact it wasn't...he just went flying by it in a passing zone. How is anyone supposed to know someone would be crossing or in the road when it is still dark out? We have a lot of people on our road and the road this happened on who walk in the road or very close to it, ride bikes back and forth across in front of you and you never know when someone will be in the road. I worry constantly about accidently hitting someone that is in the road especially at night and have been scared many times by how close or how people are in the road when its dark just walking instead of walking along the road in the grassy area, it is scary!
