Shepherd hit the children with her truck while passing a stopped school bus in Fulton County as the children were crossing the road. She claims she saw the bus, but didn’t realize it was a school bus.
Witness testimony stated that Shepherd never hit the brakes and did not ask police about the condition of the children afterward.
