Terrifying surveillance footage from a school bus in Allegany County, New York, shows a group of children pleading with their bus driver to stop the bus. The reason for their distress is driver Martha Thompson, who was operating a motor vehicle with a .15 blood alcohol content, nearly twice the legal limit. Per a report from CBS, the 55-year-old New York native plead guilty to driving while intoxicated as well as 37 counts of reckless endangerment – one for each student on the bus. Children on the bus revealed that Thompson reached speeds up to 70 miles per hour and hit a mail box. In watching the video, you can sense the unrest on the bus immediately, and it’s not long before the children make their stand.
