Driver in serious condition, kids unharmed after school bus crash in Oakville, Ont. Add to ...

A morning crash in Oakville resulted in a school bus perched on a retaining wall next to Bronte Harbour, leaving the driver injured and two children unharmed.

Police say the crash happened at about 8 a.m. Thursday, when a bus stuck a tree and smashed through an iron fence after mounting the curb.

The driver was taken to Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital after being pulled from the bus by emergency crews. He was then transferred to Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga where he was listed in serious condition.

The 62-year-old Burlington man’s identity has not been released. Neither have the names of the students or their school.

The children — brothers aged 11 and seven — were also removed from the bus and turned over to their mother at the scene.

A section of Bronte Road (between Lakeshore Road and Marine Drive) was closed for 3 1/2 hours for police investigation.
