Students injured in bus crash

A GROUP of students from Tweed Heads South Public School were injured after their school bus crashed into a car this afternoon in Tweed Heads.

Four of the school children sustained minor lacerations and one was taken to Tweed Hospital with a dislocated finger.

The rest of the students were shaken but unharmed.

Senior Tweed Heads firefighter Mark Donovan said the bus ran into a parked car on Ducat Street and pushed it through a brick fence.

The school bus then travelled another 100 metres down the road before coming to a complete stop.

The door of the bus could not be opened so the back emergency window was broken, allowing the children to escape.

A spokesman from the New South Wales Ambulance service said there were approximately 24 school children on the bus.
