There's a reason why states are cracking down on drivers who illegally pass school buses when their lights are on.

This dramatic video from central New York state shows a 13 year-old boy from Norwich ready to exit the school bus at his stop. Little did he know a car was illegally speeding by even as the bus door opened. Thankfully, driver Samantha Call's quick wits kicked in, as she grabbed the boy and prevented him from getting off. Call can be heard laying on the horn in frustration as the other vehicle brazenly speeds by.

The incident happened on the morning of April 26

The Chenango County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident.
