(WMC-TV) - A man who crashed his truck into a gas pipe Wednesday afternoon nearly hit multiple children as they were getting off the bus.
Highway 51 south of Hernando, Mississippi at Belmont Road was shut down to one lane for clean up.
Scarlett Plemmons was trapped in her house on the highway after a man lost control of his truck, ran over her mailbox and hit the gas pipe to her house.
"It was extremely scary I didn't know where my kids were," said Plemmons.
Her children had just been dropped off by the school bus. At first, she saw the bus but no children. She only saw the man in his truck barreling down the driveway.
"I didn't know if they were, plowed over, if they were standing ... Panic. Complete panic," said Plemmons.
Her husband arrived not knowing what was going on. He could not get past the blocked road.
