OKC police search for driver who crashed into bus

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City police are searching for a driver who crashed into a school bus that was taking special-needs students to an elementary school.

Police say 10 students were on the bus when the crash happened at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. Police tell OKC television station KWTV (http://is.gd/QNQp68 ) that at least four students and the bus driver were taken to a hospital with injuries that weren't life-threatening.

Authorities say the bus was taking autistic children to North Highland Elementary School. The force of the collision caused the school bus to topple onto its side.

Police say the driver of the car jumped from her vehicle and ran away after the collision.

Superintendent Karl Springer praised the bus driver for helping the children to safety.
