At least 47 people, including children, were injured in a school bus crash involving several vehicles in Germany on Tuesday morning, according to local media.

In the accident, the bus got off the road and collided with several cars before crashing head-on into a house wall in the southern German town of Eberbach, Xinhua news agency reported, quoting the Focus Online.

A police spokesman in Eberbach, the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, said that 37 people were slightly injured and 10 others were in serious condition.

Every morning, the bus picks up students from the surrounding communities and sends them to Eberbach, which is located in the Rhine-Neckar district on the border with Hesse, east of Mannheim.
