    Police say a fight between teenage students led to an accident involving two school buses in Drexel Hill.

    Officials say two students from the Elwyn School began fighting on the bus. As the two fought, the driver and an aide went to the back of the bus and broke up the fight.

    As the driver and aide checked on one of the students, police say the other student involved in the fight, a 15-year-old boy, ran to the front of the school bus and then began to drive it.

    As the teen drove, police say another bus driver noticed and drove in front of the bus to cut it off, causing both vehicles to collide.

    Police say there were children on both buses but that none of them were injured. The only person hurt was one of the teens involved in the fight, according to investigators.

    The student was returned to the school. Police have not yet revealed whether the teen who fought and drove the bus will face any charges.

    Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told NBC10 that both teens involved in the fight are special needs students.
