MML

A mini-bus carry special needs teenagers has been hit by a tram in a terrifying CBD crash.

The driver of the bus was making a hook turn from Collins Street into Kings Street shortly before 11pm on Wednesday night when a tram took out the driver’s side door.

The bus was then pushed about 100 metres before hitting a parked car, mounting the curb and then smashing into the pillar of a building.

MFB crews helped free the driver.

Two of the four teens on the bus were injured and taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said they were from a special school on the Bass Coast and were on a school trip in the city.
