The Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office has released footage of the car they believe is responsible for a chain-reaction crash that left 14 students and a school bus driver injured Wednesday morning.
According to investigators, the driver of the car attempted to pass a tractor-trailer carrying a wide load, but clipped the trailer and fled the scene. The tractor-trailer then lost control and struck the school bus, causing the school bus to overturn.
14 of the students were transported to Lancaster General Hospital following the crash with at least one of the students being airlifted to the facility. The bus driver was also hospitalized.
The suspect’s vehicle is described as a white 1999-2003 Chevy Malibu with little to no damage. Anyone with information concerning the crash of the identity of the hit-and-run driver should contact authorities at 717-291-4676.
