Bus and car collide in Canberra's CBD

A mother and her nine-month-old baby were among the trio of patients taken to hospital after a car and bus collided in the city this morning.

The woman, aged in her 30s, and her baby were passengers on the bus, which collided with a car at the intersection of Alinga Street and West Row shortly after 9am.

An ACT Emergency Services Agency spokesman said the woman was taken off the bus on a spine board as a precaution, having only suffered minor injuries. Her baby also suffered minor injuries.

The bus driver was also transported to the Canberra Hospital for assessment following the collision, which prompted ACT Policing to close a number of roads surrounding the crash site.
