Puyallup bus clipped by fleeing car; all safe

PUYALLUP — A Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman says a Puyallup school bus with elementary school children aboard collided with a car fleeing the scene of a nearby shooting on Tuesday afternoon but no one was hurt.
Detective Ed Troyer said no one was injured in the crash and the bus suffered minimal damage from the glancing blow. About 20 children were taken off that bus and taken away in another bus.
By early Tuesday evening, deputies had arrested a 32-year-old man for investigation in the shooting. Troyer says the man was arrested for investigation of assault, hit and run and possession of stolen property.
Troyer said the incident began when a silver car was involved in a shooting a half dozen blocks away. That car fled and eventually tangled with the school bus.
Investigators originally believed the bus had been struck by gunfire, but later corrected that report.
