One person has diead, at least two are seriously injured and as many as eight received lesser injuries when a car and a double-decker bus collided, with the bus pinning the car down as they both skidded off the road.

Emergency services in Piteå, northern Sweden, responded with nine ambulances and one ambulance helicopter when the alarm came in around 12.30pm. They have transported all the injured people to the nearby Piteå älvdals and Sunderby hospitals, reported the TT news agency.

"It was a head on collision," emergency service coordinator Torbjörn Johansson told TT. The relatively intact bus appears to have pushed the car straight into the forest.

Bit of a mis translation if you look at the pictures. Not a true double decker but one of those high roofed single deckers coaches with passengers sat on 2 levels.
