An armed robbery suspect in a stolen car led police on a pursuit through Puyallup on Friday, striking two vehicles and a pedestrian before crashing into an unoccupied school bus.
The chase started about 8 a.m. at the South Hill Mall when a Pierce County sheriff’s deputy recognized the stolen car and the driver, who was wanted for a convenience store robbery in Roy last week.
During the pursuit, the fleeing car hit two cars and a pedestrian before the driver ran a red light, getting clipped by a truck and crashing into a school bus at 39th Avenue SW and Ninth Street SW.
No children were on the bus; the driver was not hurt.

Only minor injuries were reported from the three collisions.
