An Echuca woman was treated for minor injuries after her car collided with a bus north of Kyabram.

A car collided with a bus full of school children on the corner of John-Allan and Finlay Rd this afternoon.

The two vehicles were both heading south on John-Allan Rd around 1.30pm.

The car, a silver Toyota Camry, was driving in front of the bus and slowed down to turn right into Finlay Rd.

The bus, carrying 23 school children from Horsham, is believed to have overtaken the Camry, which hit the left hand side of the bus and drove into a ditch.

A 57 year old Echuca woman was taken to hospital by ambulance while Police said there were no injuries to anyone on the bus.

Senior Constable Carita Thompson said both bus and car ‘‘were very, very lucky.’’

‘‘It could have been a lot worse, they really are very lucky,’’ she said.

Police say they are still yet to determine who was at fault in the collision.
