UPDATE: Lucky escape for all involved in car, bus crash

UPDATE, 3PM: A crash between two cars and a bus could have ended far worse this morning, with all involved able to walk away without any injuries.

Emergency services were called to the intersection of Ryan and Bligh streets in South Grafton earlier today following reports of a collision between two cars and a bus.

Coffs/Clarence Police District Chief Inspector Joanne Reid said a vehicle travelling along Bligh St went to go through the give way sign of the Ryan St intersection and collided with a car travelling from the direction of Waterview Heights.

"The impact has then spun the first car around which has hit a bus waiting on the other side of Bligh St," Chief Insp Reid said.

Thankfully for all involved there were no reported injuries in either car, and the handful of passengers on the bus were unharmed.

"It could have been quite serious but thankfully in the end it was a relatively minor collision," Chief Insp Reid said.

It was confirmed that no drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.

EMERGENCY services responded to a collision between a bus and a car in South Grafton this morning.

About 11.05am the two vehicles crashed on Ryan St at Bligh St, South Grafton. Emergency services were called following reports at least one person was trapped as a result of the crash.

According to Live Traffic NSW the crash site has now been cleared, however motorists should exercise caution in the area.
