DETAILS are still emerging about a collision between a bus and a truck at Safety Beach on Wednesday 5 July.
The bus was carrying up to 20 passengers when the collision occurred mid-morning at the intersection of Dromana Parade and Prescott Avenue.
The 44-year-old bus driver and a 17-year-old male passenger who is believed to have lost several teeth in the crash were taken to Frankston Hospital. Several passengers were treated at the scene.
It is believed the smash caused the bus to career into a property’s front fence before it ploughed into an adjoining fence and home.
One witness said they saw a man frantically climbing through the window of the bus to help those on board. Nobody was at home in either of the houses.
The 32-year-old male truck driver was not injured and is assisting police with inquiries.
The owner of one of the houses hit, Tim Green, told the media his first concern – despite structural damage to the holiday house his father built – was the safety of the people involved.
