Two school buses collided head-on in Germany on Thursday, leaving around 40 children and adults injured, five of them seriously, police said.
After the bus crash a car also ploughed into the accident site in the Fuerth district near Nuremberg in the southern state of Bavaria.
Three ambulance rescue helicopters and a police chopper were deployed along with scores of emergency services personnel.
Fire-fighters used metal-cutting equipment to free at least four people who were trapped in the crumpled wreckage of the vehicles.
