    A young Louisville, Kentucky, girl was dragged by the school bus after her backpack became stuck in the door while she was getting off the bus.

    The incident was caught on home surveillance video and shows the girl being dragged along the ground, hanging from the door of the bus. 

    Louisville Metro police told NBC affiliate WAVE, the bus dragged the child about 100 feet, until a driver of a red Chevy Camaro followed the bus with its horn blaring and got the bus driver to stop. 

    Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell said the child suffered road rash and was taken to a hospital, WAVE reported. She's expected to recover from her injuries.

    Jefferson County Public Schools administrators have launched an investigation. Police are also investigating.
