From The Canberra Times, 29 October 2014 -

A girl, 12, has been injured and taken to Canberra Hospital after the bus she was travelling in and a truck collided in Conder on Wednesday morning.

An ACT Policing spokesman said the ACTION bus hit a truck near the intersection of Drakeford Drive and Tharwa Drive around 8.30am.

She was transported to Canberra Hospital in a stable condition and sustained minor injuries, the spokesman said.

Three other people suffered minor injuries including glass cuts and were treated at the scene, the spokesman added.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said the girl had been hit by the bus.

The bus involved was 301. It has now been repaired and returned to service on 1 December.
