Terrified parents received the phone call you "never want to get" after a bus carrying 40 children in Sydney's south crashed into a car.

The bus was travelling on Peninsular Rd, Grays Point, taking students from Grays Point Public School before it hit a car which pulled out of a cross-street.

NSW Ambulance paramedics went to the crash around 9am treating children and the driver of the car for shock and minor injuries.

Paramedics took two students to Sutherland Shire Hospital for further treatment. They are in a stable condition.

An NSW Ambulance spokesman said the primary school-aged children had injuries to their arms.

Leesha Cooke told The Daily Telegraph her heart dropped when she got a phone call from her 12-year-old son Riley who was travelling on the bus.

"I was told a P-plater pulled out in front of the bus and then the bus driver slammed the brakes on," she said.

"Riley phoned us when my partner and I were at home getting ready for work. All I heard was 'bus' and 'accident' before we raced down there.

"You never want to get these types of phone calls from your kids. It was terrifying."

NSW Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
