Williams faces felony charges of hit and run, possession of a stolen vehicle and passing a stopped school bus and striking a person. He also was charged with driving while license revoked.

The incident took place around 8:30 a.m. Jan. 5. The school bus was picking up three Smith High students and had its stop arm out, Guilford County Schools officials said.

Two other cars were stopped behind the bus when a third car failed to stop, police said. That car swerved off the road and went onto the sidewalk, Greensboro police said.

The car, a silver Hyundai Elantra with a New Jersey license plate, brushed Williamson before fleeing the scene, police said.

The collision happened so quickly that the bus driver wasn’t able to use the hand signals that are now required by state law, district officials said.

Williams was identified as a suspect following a Crime Stoppers tip and a brief investigation, police said. He was held under a $5,000 bond.
