New York Carjackers Arrested After Crashing Into School Bus Filled With Children

Two New York men were arrested after they stole a Jeep at knifepoint, crashed the vehicle into a school bus filled with children, and attempted to flee on foot, Fox News reported.

On March 15th, a Rochester woman was carjacked at knife point by two men as she was leaving work. When police spotted the red Jeep and attempted to pull the vehicle over, the driver reversed into the police car and fled at high speeds. As multiple police units began to chase the suspect vehicle, the driver of the stolen Jeep collided with a school bus full of children.

The occupants of the stolen Jeep then take off from the scene on foot, with officers from the Rochester Police Department running behind them. After a short pursuit, the two men were arrested without further incident.

The female victim of the car jacking was injured and received medical attention at a nearby hospital. Fortunately, none of the 17 students nor the driver of the school bus were injured in the crash. The Rochester Public School District was immediately made aware of the in identity and arranged to have each child transported to their homes.
