Bridgetown school bus crash
About 30 students have luckily escaped almost completely unharmed following a bus crash in Bridgetown this morning.
A 14-year-old male Bridgetown High School student was treated on site by St John Ambulance for a suspected shoulder injury before being taken to Bridgetown Hospital as a precaution.
There were no injuries reported for rest of the students, who were from Bridgetown Primary School.
Bridgetown police received a call about 8.30am that the bus crashed near the intersection of Lefroy Road and Walter Road.
It is believed the school bus — travelling between 20km and 30km an hour — hit a soft drain verge, slid into the bank on the side of the road and scraped along a tree.
Two back windows were broken during the crash.
The bus driver removed all the students off the bus.
A replacement bus was organised and some parents attended the scene and took their children the rest of the way to school.
