GLENDALE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Friday morning at 6:16 a.m. Glendale Police Officers were dispatched to Amato Nissan on Port Washington Road for a report of a burglary in progress. When officers tried to stop a suspicious vehicle it sped away and Glendale officers chased it.

The pursuit continued south onto MLK Drive and ended when the car crashed into a school bus driving north at the intersection with Locust. 

Six teen boys in the car were arrested. None of them fled the scene. Three of the boys were 17-years-old, one was 16-years-old and two were 15-years-old. The six had injuries ranging from minor scratches to broken bones but none appeared life-threatening. One had to be cut out of the car. All six were taken to the hospital for treatment. 

Four people were on the bus including one adult and three kids. The kids were ages 11, 12 and there was a 2-month-old baby on board. All four sustained minor injuries and were treated.

The car involved in the crash was stolen from Acura of Brookfield Thursday morning. The suspects did not get any cars from Amato Nissan.

In a press conference, Glendale Police called the car thefts a "dangerous epidemic." 

Marilyn Lattimore who had a granddaughter on the bus said, "Well I just got a call that the bus was in an accident. My daughter was there and we just took off running. My granddaughter was so hysterical of course; she couldn't feel her face on her left or her shoulders or legs."

Glendale Police are working with multiple police departments and are still investigating.
