Two men were arrested this morning for allegedly stealing a taco truck and crashing it into a school bus during a police pursuit.

The taco truck led police in San Bernardino on a wild chase this morning, at points reaching speeds up to 80 miles per hour, ABC 7 reports.

The chase ended after about two miles when the driver of the truck lost control of the vehicle and sideswiped a school bus before crashing into a propane tanker near South L and West Mill Streets at about 9:30 a.m. Shots were fired following the crash, but no one was hit and both men were arrested. The men were later identified as Sean Fowler, 20, and Daiquon Horne, 22.

The taco taco truck's rightful owner, Carolina Garcia, told NBC Los Angeles that the truck had been stolen at some point last night.

There were 37 children on the school bus at the time of the crash, but none were injured, according to the Press Enterprise. All were placed on another bus, which transported them to the nearby Richardson PREP Hi Middle School.
