Update: 11:25AM SCHOOL children travelling in a taxi involved in an early morning pile-up escaped injury and are safe.

The accident occurred  after a bus rolled backwards and crashed into two taxis travelling in the same direction.

Police divisional traffic officer Western ASP Mitieli Divuana said the brakes of the Lautoka General Transport bus had failed causing it to roll backwards down the hill at the junction between Tavakubu and Sukanaivalu Road.

The bus was towed away to the Lands Transport Authority base at Natokawaqa for inspection.
