(CNN) — Italian police say a quick-thinking student hid himself and called authorities when a school bus carrying 51 children was hijacked and set on fire by its driver. None of the pupils, aged between 11 and 13, was hurt after police arrived and broke down the back windows to free the passengers, a police spokesman told CNN.
