Initial indications were two people who were not on the bus were injured.

A Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesman said crews from Lookout Point and St Kilda attended.

There was initially confusion regarding how many vehicles were involved and appliances from Willowbank and Dunedin attended in case the situation was worse, he said.

Nobody was trapped and crews assisted with safety at the scene, he said.

A St John spokeswoman said two ambulances, two rapid response units attended the scene.

Two patients were treated in a moderate condition and one was transported to hospital, she said.
