Newly-formed video from a Leander school bus shows the bus into a low-water crossing like floodwaters deluged Central Texas last week. The bus was washed off the road, bobbing backwards soaked Brushy Creek for several minutes until rescuers got the driver and a 12-year-old boy for safety.
The video, which is about four minutes long, was released to the American Statesman and KVUE TV on Friday and is part of the investigation into a childbirth case against school bus driver Nathan DeYoung.
DeYoung was also required to drive around a barricade and was booked to Williamson County Failure in October. 1
6, event day.
The video shows the bus that runs around a warning sign on county road 177 before entering the low-water intersection. Within a few seconds the bus on the bus is almost completely sunk.
From there, the bus is carried by the water for about two minutes – swung from hydropower and knocks in tree branches and other debris – before finally resting in a group of trees. The video ends with the bus stranded in the stream with water flowing over the hood.
At that time, civil servants from Leander Fire Department and Williamson County Emergency Medical Services were rescuing the boy and DeYoung.
The boy mom Ashley Ringstaff wrote in a Facebook letter that that son called her “in hysterics (from the bus) telling him he loves me and that he is afraid and thinking he should die. I hope no one ever has to listen on his child or loved a preparation to die because of a stupid decision that should never have happened. “
