Some 28 people ended up in A & E after a bus driver lost control and crashed in Aarhus on Tuesday afternoon.

“There were children among the passengers, and as a precaution, 27 passengers and the bus driver were taken for a check-up at A & E,” said Carsten Dahl, the head of security at East Jutland Police, according to DR.

“Fortunately, no-one was injured in the accident.”

Poorly bus driver
“The driver told us he suddenly blacked out. It is likely he has been taken ill,” Dahl told Ekstra Bladet.

The bus hit two parked cars and some kind of rockery on Hasle Torv, before it came to a stop in a shrubbery.

The accident occurred at 3:24 pm, causing brief traffic delays.
