School bus crash near Atawhai


A school bus carrying 20 children was involved in an accident this morning near Todd Bush Rd.

Senior fire officer Symon Mitchell says the driver of the car was taken to hospital but was not in a serious condition. None of the children on board were injured but were “shaken” and were eventually moved to another bus before being taken to school.

He says the accident happened at around 8am and the children were still on the bus when they arrived.
