Hit-and-run with school bus

Archives, Trucking Accidents

Tampa police are looking for a driver who apparently drove around a fire truck, three passenger cars and then crashed into a school bus carrying special needs children the other afternoon – the man got out, looked at the damage, talked to witnesses, and fled the scene.  There were nine children on the bus; none were injured.

Witnesses gave the police a description of the hit-and-run vehicle, which has extensive front-end damage on the driver’s side.  They were not able to give a good description of the man.  Had the driver stayed at the scene, he would have been cited for the accident, but because he left, it is considered a hit-and-run crime.

Police are asking anyone who has seen this man to please contact them.
