GARDAI yesterday praised schoolchildren for having their seatbelts on when the bus in which they were travelling collided with a car in Burt.
Gardai are investigating the accident that took place in the Bohillion area as the Lough Swilly bus was taking the pupils to school.
All six children onboard the bus escaped injury. The bus driver was also uninjured but the driver of the car was taken to Letterkenny General Hospital as a precaution. Gardaí confirmed there was minor material damage done to the vehicles. A spokesperson confirmed the children were all seatbelted at the time. He said the driver and the children had "set a good example" to others. The children were taken home by their parents after the accident which is under Garda investigation.
