A northern Greene County woman was charged with reckless endangerment Wednesday afternoon after failing to stop for a school bus stop signal and nearly hitting a child crossing the road.
Greene County deputies charged Shasta N. Miller, 28, of Millers Chapel Road, with a second offense of driving on a revoked license in the same incident, according to a warrant.
A school bus driver from Baileyton Elementary School identified Miller to deputies, according to the warrant, and said she failed to stop for a bus stop signal on the Horton Highway at 3:30 p.m.
As one student crossed the road, according to the warrant, Miller "had to slam on brakes" to avoid hitting the child, and her vehicle struck the child's backpack.
A report on the same incident said Miller's car left a long skid mark, and the 6-year-old girl had to run out of the road to avoid being hit.
The report said Miller stopped briefly, then continued on her way.
Her bond was set at $12,000.
