As many as 60 passengers were on the bus when it smashed into the trailers of a B-double truck, which had become dislodged and blocked the road in both directions.

The bus driver died at the scene.

Two of the injured passengers have been flown to Melbourne for treatment.

Three dozen others were taken to Wimmera Base Hospital in Horsham.

The Western Freeway is closed between Horsham and Dimboola.
