Emergency crews responded to the incident on Elliot Heads Rd about 3.30pm yesterday when a bus left the road and crashed.

The spokesman said it was believed the crash was weather related.

The incident was one of two afternoon bus crashes yesterday, another carrying 13 children was involved in a three-vehicle crash at Yeppoon and Artillery Rds in Iron Pot about 4.45pm.

The second crash saw eight children assessed for injuries but no-one needed to be taken to hospital.
