KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City man is charged with fleeing from a collision that tipped a school bus onto its side.
Jackson County prosecutors on Friday charged 33-year-old Toryne Sanders with leaving the scene of an injury accident and driving while his license was revoked.
Sanders is accused of crashing the car he was driving into the side of a school bus at an intersection Thursday afternoon. Some of the five children and two adults on the bus suffered minor injuries.
Witnesses reported seeing the car's driver run away. Sanders was arrested at his father's home about three hours after the collision. He was also injured and was taken to a hospital.
Sanders did not have a lawyer Friday, and a phone number for him could not be found.
