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.
