Police are looking for a vehicle driver in a hit-and-run crash that overturned a school bus in Lancaster County Wednesday morning, reportedly injuring more than a dozen people, mostly Mennonite students on the bus. A light-colored sedan was trying to pass the oversize load that was carrying a mobile home when it hit the load and the escort vehicle before speeding off.

Police were looking for a light-colored sedan with front bumper damage.

A Lancaster General Hospital spokesman says 16 injured were treated there-14 students, the bus driver, and the driver of another vehicle in the crash. The other 12 kids have been treated and released. His vehicle will likely have front-bumper damage.

Emergency responders in Lancaster County said the accident involving a Lancaster Mennonite school bus bringing students to school occurred shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday in East Lampeter Township.

The bus was transporting students 7 to 18 years old from Chester County.

Investigators believe the crash was caused by a hit-and-run driver. All patients at Lancaster General Hospital have been released, Lines said. The bus driver and another driver were also taken to hospital.

John Bowman, East Lampeter Police Chief, says that police are searching for the vehicle involved.

- Police in Lancaster have released images of a vehicle they say caused a school bus to overturn, injuring 14 students and the bus driver, before fleeing the scene. A hospital spokesperson said three students sustained traumatic injuries.

Vandals strike several tombstones at Jewish cemetery in Pa. The escort vehicle was pushed into the oncoming lane and sideswiped the bus, causing the bus to impact one tractor-trailer's load and tip onto its side, prosecutors said.
