Ten students have been taken to hospital.
Ten students have been taken to hospital after a bus collided with a truck on a Queensland motorway.
Authorities were called to the M1 motorway around 9.35 a.m. on Wednesday after a bus that had stopped on the side of the road was hit by a truck with a trailer.
Queensland Ambulance Service said 60 people were aboard the bus, including 55 students aged 14-15, four teachers, and the driver.
The driver of the truck was a single occupant.
The QAS said 11 people were taken to hospitals in Brisbane, Logan, and the Gold Coast for treatment, 10 of which were students.
“Most of the injuries were fairly moderate,” QAS senior operations supervisor Scott Harris said.
“The people that went to the Gold Coast, there were some fractures and abrasions.
“Two of the patients had facial injuries, one had a chest and two had lower leg injuries.”
Queensland Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.
