A CAR and a bus carrying schoolchildren were involved in a head-on crash near Malmesbury.

The male driver of the car, a Volvo, suffered minor injuries in the collision, which happened just after 8.30am yesterday on a narrow country lane between Charlton and Lea. His car was badly damaged.

None of the children aboard the bus, which was heading to Lea and Garson Primary School, were hurt nor were two young children in the Volvo.
