New York carjacking suspects crash into bus full of children while fleeing police –

Two suspects in New York were arrested this week after ramming an allegedly stolen Jeep at knifepoint into a school bus full of children while being pursued by police.

Police in Rochester, New York, say two suspects stole a red jeep at knifepoint from a 51-year-old woman before being spotted by officers trying to stop traffic, Fox 5 New York reported this week.

During the stop, police told the suspects to get out of the vehicle, but the driver put the vehicle in reverse, crashed into one of the police cars, and drove off.

Bystander Raymond González heard the sirens and pulled out his phone in time to record the Jeep flying the wrong way down a street before crashing into the school bus carrying 17 children.

The two suspects then jumped out of the car and fled on foot.

Officers can be seen in the video chasing one of the suspects and yelling at him to “get on the ground” before finally apprehending him.
