A police spokesperson said the incident occurred shortly after 9am this morning when a school van carrying elderly people hit the petrol tanker.

It was unclear what caused the crash but about four people were being treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The spokesperson said because the crash involved a petrol tanker there were fears it may have been more serious.
