School bus flips in hit-and-run crash; 16 taken to hospital

A Pennsylvania State Police trooper looks over a school bus that overturned after a collision in East Lampeter Township Pa. Wednesday

Authorities say a hit-and-run accident in eastern Pennsylvania that resulted in a school bus flipping onto its side sent more than a dozen people to the hospital.

Emergency responders said the Lancaster Mennonite school bus was taking students to school when the crash happened just before 8 a.m.in East Lampeter Township. A driver in a sedan attempted to pass the oversize load and struck one of the escort cars, which then struck the bus.

The male driver of the sedan continued heading east, investigators say.

A Lancaster General Hospital spokesman says 16 injured were treated there-14 students, the bus driver, and the driver of another vehicle in the crash. One child was ejected from the bus during the crash and had to be airlifted to a local hospital.

According to hospital officials, three students suffered traumatic injuries and the others suffered less severe injuries. The front of the vehicle could be damaged and may have driver's side damage.

Police would like tractor-trailer drivers who were in the area of the crash Wednesday morning to come forward with any dash-cam footage they might have.

"Several pastors are at the Locust Grove Campus today having prayer with the students", the school said. The auto hit the escort vehicle, which caused it to, in turn, hit the school bus.
