Bus passengers suffer personal injuries following crash
A head teacher has praised three children who rescued fellow pupils following a bus accident in Lincolnshire.
The bus accident took place after the vehicle was driven into a roadside ditch while carrying children home from school.
There had been about 30 children on the bus, aged between 11 and 16-years-old.
Many of the young passengers were taken to hospital in Grantham with minor personal injuries, including cuts, bruises and whiplash. One student is still having treatment at the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham.
Several children had a lucky escape after a branch broke through the window of the bus and narrowly missed them.
The principal of Charles Read Academy in Corby Glen, Lincolnshire has spoken of how proud he is of pupils that freed themselves and pulled others to safety from the wreckage.
Lincolnshire Police are currently attempting to trace a Mini Cooper car, which may have been involved in the bus accident.
