Police said the 6-year-old was ejected from the bus and trapped.

Students and a bus driver were hospitalized after a school bus crashed in East Lampeter Township, Pa., May 17, 2017.

The escort auto that was leading on oversized load was struck by a passing vehicle that collided with the school bus.

A 6-year-old boy is considered a critical patient with serious injuries, officials said.

Police said they're looking for the male driver who caused the crash by trying to pass two tractor-trailers and their escort vehicles while headed east on Lincoln Highway East.

Both adults and 12 of the students have since been released, a Lancaster General Hospital spokesperson said Thursday. Two of the children were being treated for traumatic injuries, Lancaster General Hospital spokesman John Lines told the Daily News. The 16-year-old boy is expected to be released from the hospital later today. The driver left the scene after the crash, police said. It was described as a light colored sedan, possibly newer, with front end damage being driven by a man with short hair east on Route 30, WGAL reported.

"We want to have a conversation with this driver", Hambright said.

"Thank you for your prayers as our school community continues to heal, physically and emotionally, from Wednesday's bus accident". School counselors are available, as always, to help in times of crisis.

The hospital is preparing itself to not only treat the students affected, but also the parents, who are likely to undergo emotional stress as they wait to be reunited with their children.
