Authorities say a hit-and-run accident in eastern Pennsylvania that resulted in a school bus flipping onto its side sent more than a dozen people to the hospital.

PennDOT officials tell CBS21 News, preliminary reports show the driver of a white sedan was trying to pass another auto on the road but misjudged the distance, causing a three-car collision. The escort vehicle was then pushed into another lane, side-swiping the school bus.

"Obviously, our first source is God and the strength that he provides in situations like this", said Lancaster Mennonite Superintendent Pam Tieszen.

Authorities said the others involved were treated and released from the hospital.

"Several pastors are at the Locust Grove Campus today having prayer with the students", the school said.

According to police, the driver attempted to speed around semi-trailer truck but ended up colliding into an escort vehicle. They have been treated and released. 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. The auto was seen by witnesses passing other vehicles.

UPDATE: One student at Lancaster General Hospital was airlifted to another hospital for more critical treatment.
