Ten students in Temple Hills were hospitalized Monday morning after the school bus they were riding in was involved in an accident, Prince George’s County police said.
The school bus was stopped at a red light at the 4800 block of Temple Hills Road at about 8:25 a.m. when it was rear-ended by an SUV, said Cpl. Evan Baxter, a police spokesman.
The bus was taking students to Thurgood Marshall Middle School when it was hit.
Ten students were taken to area hospitals with neck and back complaints, but “nothing serious,” Baxter said.
Baxter did not know the condition of the school bus driver.
The driver of the SUV fled the scene on foot and has not been found, according to Baxter. He declined to say whether the driver has been identified based on the car’s registration.
The incident remains under investigation.
