A 21-year-old Raytown woman faces three felony counts after she failed to obey a school bus stop sign and a child crossing the street was injured, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Aminah Z. Ali, dob: 11/17/1994, faces Assault in the 2nd Degree, Failing to Stop for a School Bus Receiving or Discharging School Children and Leaving the Scene of an Accident.*

According to court records, the child was run off the road and thrown into some bushes, breaking his collarbone after a car that had been stopped in a line behind the bus and its stop sign, jumped the line and struck the student. Several witnesses described how the stop bar and flashing lights were activated. The car identified was registered to the defendant and the driver was later identified by the father of the student, who was waiting at the bus stop for the student and saw the driver of the vehicle who struck him.

"Each of us has a responsibility to look out for the safety and welfare of our children," Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $25,000/10 percent.
