SEATTLE (AP) – Authorities say a man who stole a 33,000-pound unoccupied school bus, rammed into other vehicles, then led Seattle Police on a pursuit has been arrested.
Several minor were injuries were reported.
Police said they were notified shortly before 8 a.m. that a man had stolen an empty bus in south Seattle.
The man swerved across traffic, ran red lights and appeared to “purposefully ram other vehicles.”
Authorities say he eventually struck a King County Metro bus and later crashed into a light-rail station construction site.
The man – who police said is believed to be a bus service employee who is not authorized to drive buses – ran from the stolen bus but was soon caught and taken into custody.
