    Surveillance video was released on Tuesday from cameras that were rolling inside a Broward County Transit bus that ran over 14-year-old Jerry Cunningham last week. Video showed the teen running to catch the vehicle, and one passenger is heard saying, "You have a runner." Passenger Brian Clark described what he witnessed last week. On Tuesday 911 calls were also made available in the case.

    At least one witness said Cunningham had been stuck with part of his arm caught in the door before he fell and was run over.

    Cunningham suffered fractures to his face, ribs and ankle in the incident, which was caught on surveillance footage from inside the bus.

    The driver of the bus, Reinaldo Soto, 55, is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
