A St John's spokesperson told 1 NEWS one person was taken to hospital with minor injuries, while the female driver was treated at the scene for shock.

Witness Kirsten Barker arrived at the scene shortly after the crash and says it wasn't clear if the bus crashed due to a mechanical or a medical event.

Other witnesses at the scene reported hearing a loud crash and some reported seeing the bus "weaving" across the road before it crashed.

The road is now open and the bus remains at the scene.
