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

Lancaster Mennonite spokesman Gary Hiller said the bus was carrying 12 high school students, one middle school student and one Locust Grove elementary student.

The escort auto that was leading on oversized load was struck by a passing vehicle that collided with the school bus. All patients at Lancaster General Hospital have been released, Lines said.

Investigators said they are still looking for a man who caused the crash by trying to pass two tractor-trailers and their escort vehicles while headed east. Anyone with information is asked to call East Lampeter police at 717-291-4676.

New York Daily News reports that 16 people, including 15 students, were taken to the hospital after a driver smashed into a bus in in eastern Pennsylvania on Wednesday morning.

The Lancaster County district attorney's office released a photograph from surveillance video recorded at a local business.

Another student, a 16-year-old, is expected to be released from at a children's hospital in DE later in the day.

Police said that the suspect was driving a light-colored sedan.

Police said one student was thrown from the bus and flown to the hospital.

"There's a very good possibility that this vehicle, as it was traveling eastbound prior to the accident scene, may have been passing other vehicles", township police Chief John Bowman said.

"We want to have a conversation with this driver", Hambright said.

Emergency personnel look over a school bus that overturned early Wednesday.


"School is operating normally, although prayer and support will be infused throughout the day".

The hospital is preparing itself to not only treat the students affected, but also the parents, who are likely to undergo emotional stress as they wait to be reunited with their children.
