Authorities say a stolen school bus going the wrong way on a highway crashed head on into a car, injuring the car driver and sparking an intense fire in Camden.

According to police, the bus was parked outside a Camden home when it was stolen Saturday around 10 p.m. Officers briefly pursued it, but soon lost track of the vehicle.

The bus was seen again a short time later traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of the Admiral Wilson Boulevard in Pennsauken.

The crash soon occurred, and the person driving the bus ran on foot.

A woman driving the car suffered undisclosed injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

Her name and further details on her condition have not been disclosed.

The person driving the bus remains at large.
