Children injured in bus crash

CHILDREN on two buses have escaped with minor injuries after their buses ran into each other this afternoon.

The children are believed to have been from a school in St Marys who were on a school holiday excursion.

Emergency services were called to State Mine Gully Rd in Marrangaroo just before 4pm to reports a bus had run into the back of another bus.

A NSW Ambulance spokeswoman said that 61 children - aged between six and 12 - and five adults were currently being assessed at the scene by paramedics from 11 ambulances.

That number was later revised down by police who said there were 68 people on the buses with 50 of them children.

As well as ambulance personnel there were also Fire & Rescue NSW and volunteers from the Lithgow NSW Volunteer Rescue Association.

Emergency services set up a triage area at the site with most of the injuries believed to be bruising.

Three of the children and one of the adults were taken to Lithgow Hospital for further assessment.

The remainder of the children were being taken to Lithgow Hospital to be checked as a precaution.
