Children unhurt in Kansas City school bus crash

KANSAS CITY (AP) — Kansas City police are looking for a driver who ran away after a collision between a car and a school bus that toppled onto its side.

School district officials say there were no injuries among the six children and one adult who were on the bus when the crash occurred around 4:45 p.m. Thursday near Swope Park.

The impact at an intersection tipped the full-size bus onto its right side, with a utility pole lying across it. The children and adult escaped through a rear door.

Witnesses reported seeing a bloodied man get out of the badly damaged red sedan and run from the scene.

The bus was carrying children home from Success Academy at Knotts, an alternative elementary school for children from kindergarten through sixth grade.
