“Amiya Braxton- Pontotoc Mississippi: No criminal charges in the fatal Pontotoc County school bus accident. The Pontotoc County Grand Jury declined to indict the driver twice. 7-year-old Amiya Braxton was exiting the stopped school bus on a same side of the street as her house when Karen Michelle Carpenter swerved around the bus, jumped the curb and hit Amiya. Witnesses at the scene have stated they had to keep the driver from fleeing the scene of the accident as Amiya laid dying in her own driveway. ‘Law enforcement said the passing motorist came from behind a bus and veered down the shoulder instead of going into the opposite lane’. Mississippi happens to be a state that already has such laws implicated. Nathan's law requires the motorist to stop at least 10 feet from a school bus when loading or offloading children. ‘This is the second grand jury to consider both indictments for both manslaughter and Nathan's law,’ John Weddle. Both times this case was presented to the grand jury they have declined to indict the driver of any charges in the murder of Amiya Braxton.”
