Boys crash school buses into each other in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Memphis say two 14-year-old boys used a city school system vendor's school buses in their own demolition derby.

According to The Commercial Appeal the teens crashed 31 school buses into each other Monday, causing over $60,000 in damage.

The buses are owned by Durham Services and were in an unsecured parking lot in East Memphis.

Police arrested the boys on 24 counts of vandalism and seven counts of burglary of an auto, but officers with dogs were unable to find a third person who fled as police arrived.
