Update: 3:47PM FIFTEEN people were taken to the Colonial War Memorial Hospital earlier today when the bus they were travelling in bumped into another bus.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said at 10:55am at Edinburgh Drive in Suva, a taxi stopped to give way to another vehicle turning right.

She said a Sunbeam bus stopped behind the taxi but the Dee Cees bus that was carrying 35 passengers failed to stop and hit the Sunbeam bus which hit the taxi.

She said two passengers sustained minor injuries while other passengers left without any treatment.

The driver of Dee Cees is currently being interviewed. Bus has been towed to LTA for vehicle inspection, Ms Naisoro said.
