Eight people, including six kindergarten children, were injured Tuesday when the minibus they were in veered off the street onto a sidewalk in Yao, Osaka Prefecture.
Police said the eight — the 65-year-old bus driver, an adult woman and the six children from Hoshi no Hikari kindergarten — were taken to hospital but none were seriously injured, Fuji TV reported. Nobody on the sidewalk was hurt, police said.
The accident occurred at around 8 a.m. Witnesses said the bus jumped the curb and came to rest on shrubbery lining the sidewalk.
Police are questioning the driver over how he lost control of the bus.© Japan Today
