3 girls slightly injured after school bus tips over in Mississauga

Three girls under the age of 12 were slightly injured early Monday after a school bus tipped over in Mississauga, Peel Regional Police say.

Peel paramedics took the girls and the driver to a local hospital for assessment following the single vehicle crash on Britannia Road and Glen Erin Drive. Police were called to the scene at 8:06 a.m.

One of the girls suffered scratches, according to Chris Wishnousky, superintendent for Peel Regional Paramedic Services.

Only three children were on the school bus at the time and the roads may have been muddy, he added. The school bus is believed to have tipped over on its side in slow motion, he said.

Police said they have closed Britannia Road eastbound at Glen Erin Drive as its major collision bureau investigates the crash.
