Bus carrying school children crashes into tree and parked cars in Sydney

Police are investigating after a bus carrying school children crashed into a tree and parked cars in Cronulla this afternoon.

About 1.45pm emergency services were called to the intersection of Gerrale Street and Laycock Avenue, following reports of a crash.

Initial investigations suggest a bus, driven by 76-year-old man, left the roadway at the intersection and crashed into a tree, before crashing into a number of parked cars.


The bus was carrying a number of school-age children at the time. Two children were treated at the scene by Ambulance Paramedics for minor injuries.

The driver of the bus was breath-tested at the scene and returned a negative reading.

Traffic is currently blocked on Gerrale Street between Kingsway and Laycock Avenue as investigations take place.

Inquiries into the cause of the crash are continuing.
