Blackfalds RCMP are investigating a collision between a truck and school bus, which led to the truck driver stealing the vehicle driven by a passerby who offered assistance.
The incident happened around 8 a.m. Tuesday, when the truck crashed into the bus near the intersection of Township Road 372 and Range Road 281.
When a woman stopped to offer help, the truck driver pointed a gun at her and demanded her vehicle, a Mitsubishi Outlander, according to RCMP.
He then fled in the vehicle, heading westbound on Township Road 372.
RCMP said there were seven children aboard the school bus, all assessed and cleared by paramedics. Two of the students sustained minor injuries, which were treated on scene.
