School bus crashes into house

A school bus crashed into a house Monday morning in northwest Oklahoma City, killing three people and injuring a fourth.

Police said it appeared the bus was going about 25 miles per hour when it struck the home of a 64-year-old man.

The driver of the bus fled the scene.

Police are investigating the crash as a hit-and-run.

The Associated Press and WKMG-TV in Tulsa report that the crash happened in the area of W. Northwood Street and East Westwood Boulevard.

Oklahoma State Highway Patrol officers found the vehicle abandoned on the side of the road, which had a damaged front bumper.

The vehicle had a broken front bumper and two broken tires on both sides of the front axle.

The front bumper had been partially detached from the driver’s side and was dangling off the driver and passenger seats.

The bus had a torn hood and front and rear bumper.

A man was killed and a woman was injured.

Police identified the victim as 63-year, John E. Gresham.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, and a 41-year old woman was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities are investigating why the vehicle crashed.

Authorities say the driver of a white Toyota Land Cruiser, described as a 1997-1999 model, was also involved.

It is not clear whether the vehicles were involved in the crash.

WKRG-TV reports that the victim’s wife had recently moved into the home and was helping to clean the home when the crash occurred.

A neighbor who lives across the street said he was walking around the house Monday when he saw a gray vehicle that appeared to have been hit.

He said the woman was inside the home, and the driver was inside with the front bumper down, which caused a hole in the roof.

Police arrived on scene and located the car at a local auto repair shop, where they found the driver dead.

The woman was also found at the repair shop.

No charges have been filed against the driver, but investigators are reviewing video from the vehicle to see if they have video evidence that could support charges.
