Three children and two adults were admitted to Rigshospital yesterday after a bus full of children aged three to six drove off the road and down a five metre escarpment on a road west of Hørsholm.

The accident occurred when a black Mini Cooper driving in the opposite direction attempted to overtake another vehicle and drove head on into the bus carrying 41 children.

The driver of the car, a 59-year-old man, died in the accident while the driver of the bus was one of the two adults admitted to hospital, the other being a teacher.

The cause of the accident is now under investigation.

“We need to find out what the actual cause of the accident was,” Bruno Witting-Hansen from Nordsjællands Politi told Jyllands Posten. “If we can form a conclusion then we can hold someone responsible.”

Both the bus driver and one of the children admitted to the hospital suffered serious injuries but police said they were not in critical conditions.

The children from the daycare institution Østerfææled Børenhus in Østerbro were on the way back to Copenhagen when the accident happened. Following the accident, the children were taken to Hillerød Hosptial for a check-up and remained there until their parents came.

According to Copenhagen City Council, all of the children and their parents have been offered counseling from psychologists.
