A bus carrying special-needs students has collided with a tram in Melbourne.

Two of the teenagers had to be taken to hospital.

Eilish Massie reports.


The van was attempting a right turn into Collins Street when it collided with the tram.

It was pushed one hundred metres down the street where it hit a parked car, mounted the curb and finally crashed into a concrete pillar.

Two of the four teenage passengers suffered arm and facial injuries and were taken to hospital.

Their carer, who was driving, was trapped inside the vehicle before being rescued by firefighters.

Victorian Police Officer: “This could have been worse and if it wasn’t for the help of people that were on the scene and witnessed the accident in attending to the injured.”

The students, aged 15 to 17, were on their way home from a school camp.
