New York police are looking for a man caught on video intentionally driving over a Brooklyn school bus driver late Friday afternoon and fleeing the scene.
New York CrimeStoppers released the horrifying video on Saturday, asking for help identifying the unknown man.
The 44-year-old woman “sustained trauma throughout her body,” police told the New York Post. She is listed in critical but stable condition at Brookdale Hospital.
In the video, the suspect is in a gray Subaru CTK behind the school bus, which is stopped at a traffic light at Hinsdale Street and Linden Boulevard. He gets out of the car and stomps to the front of the bus. There’s an edit in the video, and the man is back in his car behind the bus. The bus driver comes around the front.

“The guy goes up to the school bus. Looks like he broke glass. She goes to take a picture, and he runs her over,” an NYPD spokesman told the Post Saturday.
The spokesman would not speculate on the motive for the gruesome act but said the suspect and the driver did not know each other.
Police describe the suspect as about 5 feet 7 inches, 155 pounds with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a light colored jacket, a green baseball cap, blue jeans, and sneakers. Police said his Subaru’s New York license tag number is JKE-6813.
