    Yes I agree with Ric, how does one mistake a human being for a four legged animal..? What an idiot and hope they take his or hers license away… People amaze me still with their ignorance..Well wishes to the girl and her family..

    A bus stop would be on a sidewalk were they veering to hit the "deer." Someone needs to check their eyes.

    Well this is a new one. I know some kids don't stay off the road but if it was dark out the driver should have had headlights on and been watching where they were going. I to do not see how they could mistake this for a deer in the roadway.
