PERTH: Thirteen children from Indonesia and Malaysia were taken to hospital after their bus rolled over and crashed into a ditch in Western Australia, police said yesterday.
The children, aged between 10 and 12, were heading with eight adults to Lake Leschenaultia for a camping trip on Wednesday evening when the driver appeared to lose control of the bus, which “careered into a drainage ditch”.
“Three suffered injuries including suspected broken bones, and all were taken to hospital for observation,” police said in a statement.
Eight children remained in two Perth hospitals yesterday in a stable condition.
Eight adults were also hospitalised, although their injuries were not known. — AFP
