A teenage girl has been left seriously injured after a truck and school bus crashed on Tuesday afternoon.

Part of the school bus, a Richies van, was left crushed in after the crash at around 3:25pm, on Goodwood Rd near State Highway 1.

A 16-year-old girl has been taken to Dunedin Hospital by helicopter and is in a serious condition, a St John spokesperson told Newshub.

Others suffered just minor injuries, according to police. It's not known how many people were on board the bus at the time, nor how many were injured in total.

The road hasn't been blocked by the crash but traffic is running slowly.
