Suspect on run after hitting school bus


OKLAHOMA CITY – Three children and a bus driver have been treated and released Tuesday after a school bus crash on the city’s northwest side.

A woman driving a small white car ran a stop sign at N.W. 80th St.  and Classen Blvd. hitting a special needs bus carrying seven children. 

Authorities said she was driving 40 to 50 miles per hour.

The 4th grade children and the bus driver went to the hospital in good condition.

The driver of the passenger car fled the scene and Oklahoma City police are now looking for her.

The bus was on its way to North Highland Elementary School.

Sherri Seay got the call at home telling her to come quickly, her son had been in an accident.

“Scared and frightened because look at the bus, it’s just horrible. Oh Jesus, Lord,” Seay said.

Fear soon turned into anger when Seay was told the driver of the passenger car fled the scene.

“I hope they find whoever did it though because they need to go to jail for that crap,” Seay said. “And then they’re just going to run off? Come on. No. Uh uh.”

The three kids transported and the bus driver will all be just fine. 

As for Seay’s son, he is a little shaken up.

“I cried. Yeah, I cried,” her son said.

Police are searching for the driver they said is a black woman carrying a backpack.
