EIGHTEEN children were taken to hospital following a crash between a car and a double-decker bus in North Lanarkshire, Scotland but all were released without serious injury on the morning of September 11.
The children, 17 of which were pupils from Caldervale High School and a four-year-old girl who was in the car were taken to two hospitals for checks as a precaution.
The 65-year-old bus driver and 30-year-old driver of the car were both uninjured.
Karen Kubica, head teacher of Caldervale High School, said: “There was an accident involving a school bus from Chapelhall and a car on Petersburn Road this morning at around 08:40.
“On receiving a report about the accident, school staff attended the scene of the accident immediately to assist emergency services. The majority of pupils from the bus were able to be accompanied to school by school staff.
“School staff attended the hospital and waited until parents were able to meet their children,” she added.
