Aside from the obvious, what’s particularly upsetting about this Minnesota State Patrol video is that the pick-up driver didn’t bother slowing down, even when he was about to hit the girl crossing the street after being dropped off by a school bus (with flashing red lights).

The incident happened last December in Rosemount but was released today now that a court case has concluded.
On Aug. 1, Minnesota got tough on drivers like this. It raised the fine to $500.
