New York carjacking suspects crash into a bus full of children while fleeing from the police

Two suspects were arrested in New York this week after crashing a Jeep they allegedly stole at knife point into a school bus full of children while being chased by police.

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

During the stop, the police told the suspects to get out of the car, but the driver instead reversed it, crashed into one of the police cars, and took off.

Bistander Raymond Gonzalez heard the siren and pulled out his phone just in time to record the jeep flying the wrong way down the street before crashing into the school bus carrying 17 children.

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

In the video, the officers can be seen chasing down one of the suspects and shouting at him to “get off the ground” before finally arresting him.
