WILMINGTON, N.C. — Police here are looking for the drivers of three cars that hit a local school bus and kept driving.

The hit-and-run incident happened on Aug. 1 near the intersection of 7th and Wooster streets around 3:30 p.m., according to a news release from the Wilmington Police Department.

Bus video shows the bus driver dropping a child off at a bus stop and then shutting the door. Within seconds, what appears to be a gray Honda Accord or Acura TLX struck the bus and then kept driving and ran through a stop sign at a high rate of speed. Seconds later, a black four-door sedan also passed the bus and was closely followed by a third vehicle, a red or burgundy Saturn Aura, which struck the bus and also fled. No students aboard the bus were injured.

The Wilmington Police Department is asking anyone who has information on any of the three listed vehicles, their operators, or passengers, to call (910) 765-0861 or use Text-a-Tip.
