Fremont Co. Bus Stop Death Highlights Close Calls

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) ā€” A fatal bus stop accident in Fremont County is bringing some attention to close calls involving school buses.

Eleven-year-old Makayla Strahle (STRAW-Lee) of Crowheart was killed this week when she was hit by a pickup truck after getting off a school bus. Authorities say 52-year-old William D. Barnes of Lander failed to stop his pickup for the flashing signals on the bus.

School district transportation director Barry Capellen told KCWY-TV that a Wyoming Department of Education survey last February showed nearly 300 fly bys in Wyoming in a single day. He said recently in Riverton a driver of a stopped bus motioned for a student to cross the road but then had to yell at her to stop after seeing someone driving over 30 mph toward them.
