12:53 29 March 2014
The emergency services were at the scene of a three-vehicle collision in Colchester.
Police were called at about 11.35am to Severalls Lane, at the junction with Wyncolls Lane, after a Ford Transit truck was in a collision with a Land Rover Freelander.
That crash then caused the Freelander to collide with a single-decker bus. An air ambulance was also called as police closed the road.
A police spokeswoman said the female driver of the bus had suffered “minor injuries” including whiplash.
She is being taken to hospital via land ambulance as a precaution, the spokeswoman added.
An ambulance spokesman said: “We were called at 11.40am with response car, ambulance, paramedic officer and the Herts Air Ambulance attending.
“Two people were assessed at the scene and a woman in her 50s suffered minor injuries and was taken to Basildon Hospital as a precaution.”
Anyone with information should call police on 101.
