St. Louis, MO.
The driver of the car police said caused the crash and the video showed ran a red light at very high speed, was released from jail. He had yet to be charged with a crime.
The victims` loved ones said that had to change; this was a crime, not accident; this was what happened when people ran red lights.
The video clearly shows a green light for north-south traffic on Grand Boulevard at Natural Bridge in North St. Louis, when the westbound car on Natural Bridge speeds into the frame, clips one car, then 't-bones' a Metro Call-A-Ride bus; the car going so fast, it knocks the bus onto its side, Daionsha Scott, 19, and Morion Robinson, 21, both of St. Louis; both back seat passengers in the speeding car.
'All I have is the tragic moment left in my head, seeing him with all of these tubes in his mouth and he`s struggling, fighting for his life,' Robinson`s mother, Monica Robinson said through tears Tuesday night.
'That`s one of the busiest intersections in the city. Why would you be driving 80 or 100 mph at Grand and Natural Bridge ? Come on, man. My son never had a chance,' said Robinson`s father, Morris Adams.
The metro van was empty, except for the driver, who was not seriously hurt. Two survivors were still hospitalized Tuesday night; one from the car that was clipped, the other-the front seat passenger in the car that ran the light.
The driver of that car was treated at a hospital and initially released to police custody. He was a friend of both Robinson and Scott.
