School bus driver Shuronda Richardson is being recognized for her heroic actions saving children after a truck crashed into her bus. In video of the accident, you see a truck slam into the side of the Douglas County, Georgia bus and a student flying across the aisle into another seat.
Richardson radioed for help after the crash and when she realized the truck was on fire, she rushed to get the students off the bus. She credits her motherly instinct for her calm reaction during the emergency. And her quick thinking may have saved the lives of the three kids on the bus at the time.
But this driver won’t take credit for what she did. “I am not a hero — the babies are heroes,” Richardson says. “They listened and did what they were supposed to do.”
