A school bus hijacked by a knife-wielding man has been recovered by police. On Oct. 17, CNN reported that the man hijacked the bus this morning taking the driver and 11 students on a ride that lasted 20 minutes. No one was injured and a 22-year-old was arrested after the incident. As for a motive, police are still working to find one.
The incident all started when Nicholas John Miller tried to steal a car from a woman but she told him that she didn't have a car. Apparently Miller saw the school bus stopped a little ways away so he decided that would have to do. He jumped on the bus, flashed his knife, and took the driver's seat.
The school bus hijacked incident was caught on camera thanks to an onlooker. In the video you can see the bus traveling with almost a dozen police cars in pursuit. Undoubtedly a scary ordeal, the most important thing is that no one was hurt. "We were able to get the bus stopped. The suspect was taken into custody, and nobody was injured," said Jacksonville police Capt. Kenny Boyd.
