A driver who struck a school bus from behind this morning and then fled the Post Road accident scene is being sought by police.

The bus, which was carrying only the driver and a bus aide, was rear-ended by a blue Jeep Sahara about 9:15 a.m. near the Planet Pizza shop on the Post Road, between South Benson and Belmont Street, police said. The Jeep's front end was heavily damaged in the crash, police said.

The aide apparently suffered a head injury, according to the report.

The driver -- described as a white male in his late-20s -- drove from the scene before police arrived, heading east on the Post Road toward Bridgeport.
