VIDEO: Pennsylvania Trooper Shot Following Fiery Crash

A traffic stop on a busy highway in Philadelphia turned violent Tuesday when a suspect got back into his car and fled, rear-ended a school bus, and then shot and wounded a Pennsylvania State Police trooper, state police said.

Two suspects were taken into custody, and the trooper, Patrick Casey, 31, was hospitalized in stable condition, according to state police spokeswoman Maria Finn. The trooper was shot in the shoulder, reports WFMZ.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said the confrontation apparently started with a vehicle stop, and that Casey appeared to have been hit while still in his cruiser. He said the trooper returned fire after being shot and some good Samaritans were involved in the capture of the suspects.

After fleeing the stop, the suspect's car rear-ended a school bus, causing both to catch fire. There were no children on the bus, officials said.
