A 24-year-old was arrested after fleeing from the scene where he’d crashed his car into a school bus in Tweed Heads yesterday afternoon.
Fifteen students were trapped in the bus for a short time before being released by emergency services, none seriously injured as a result of the crash at around 3.20pm in Wharf Street.
A 40-year-old female passenger in the car was trapped and later taken to Gold Coast Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the car and a male passenger reportedly fled the scene before police arrived.
A short time later, officers went to a nearby home and arrested the driver.
He was taken to Tweed Heads Hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing and is currently being questioned by police.
