    A driver ran a stop sign, hitting a school bus full of children this morning in North Philadelphia, according to police.

    The bus driver, five students and a passenger in the car were hurt.

    Police say the driver of the car got out of his white Mercury and fled the scene on foot. He left his passenger trapped in the front seat. Rescue crews extricated the passenger, who was hospitalized and is in stable condition.

    The bus driver and students, who range in age from 6 to 12 years old, were taken to St. Christopher's Hospital. They too are in stable condition.

    The crash happened around 8:15 at 20th and Dauphin Streets.

    This was the third bus crash resulting in injuries in the area in a little more than 10 hours.

    Around 10 p.m. last night, Delaware State Police say that a big rig ran a red light and collided with a bus full of University of Delaware sorority members. At least nine suffered injuries in that incident.

    Then a little after 6 a.m. today, a SEPTA bus struck and killed a man as he crossed a Center City street.
