DENVER (CBS4)– Denver Police are looking for two suspects in connection with an accident involving a school bus that had children on board. The crash occurred on Wednesday afternoon on 28th Avenue and Havana Street.
After the crash, police said three people in the limo ran away from the scene and one was arrested by officers. The search for the other two suspects continues.
The bus was from HOPE Online Learning, and witnesses told CBS4’s Dillon Thomas that there were 13 students and one adult driver on the bus when it crashed.
HOPE Online Learning released this statement to CBS4: The emergency services were dispatched immediately and all students and the driver were checked for injuries on site. Four students were taken to the hospital by ambulance, and five students were taken to the hospital by their parents for further examination and treatment. There were no reports of serious injuries. The parents of all students involved were notified immediately, and all students and their parents were reunited.
Later on Wednesday night, Denver police said the suspect vehicle was involved in another accident near 39th and Peoria Streets. Nobody was seriously injured in this crash.
However, the victim tried to speak to the suspects. Then, according to police, a passenger in the suspicious vehicle pointed a gun at the victim and then fled.
The victim decided to follow the suspects. Police say the suspects posted a stop sign and got on the bus.
