A school bus collided with a trailer in Foshan yesterday morning, leaving one student dead and ten others injured, Guangzhou Daily reported on its microblog. The collision with the Guangzhou-registered trailer, which took place in Jiujiang Village, is thought to have been caused by the bus driver failing to give way.

The aftermath of the collision

One student died of his injuries after being taken to hospital, another has been transferred to a hospital in Guangzhou, three are still in hospital and six escaped with minor injuries.

There will be an investigation to see which driver was to blame. Last December China launched an investigation into twelve officials after a fatal school bus crash, of which there have been many in recent years, making the safety of school buses a hot issue.
