A woman has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after a vehicle collided with a school bus in Grand Barachois, N.B., on Monday morning.

Police say the car rear-ended the bus, which had two children on board at the time.

The driver of the car was taken to hospital with serious injuries. The two children and the bus driver were not injured.

RCMP say they were called to the accident at around 7:30 a.m. on Route 133.

Katelyn Duff, a nursing student, witnessed the crash and was the first on the scene. She told Global News it was a “terrible accident” and that she stayed with the woman and spoke to her until emergency crews arrived.

“I did not want her to be alone,” Duff said.

RCMP closed a section of Route 133 as they investigated.
