Police are looking for the missing driver who "essentially set this crash into motion", Hambright said. 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.

CBS21 News reports 15 middle school and high school students from Lancaster Mennonite school were injured, along with the driver.

A PennDOT spokesman said at least one child was flown to a hospital. The crash happened at around 7:50 a.m. Wednesday on Route 30 near the intersection of Route 896, close to Fulton Steamboat Inn in East Lampeter Township. Both adults and 12 of the students have since been released, a hospital spokesperson said today.

The accident occurred when a auto allegedly tried to pass an over-sized load, collided with the escort vehicle and then spun into the school bus, WGAL reported.
