LONDON, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- A bus driver was arrested after about 20 people, including school children, were injured when his bus hit a truck in Cumbria County, British authorities said.

Cumbria Police said told the BBC the bus' passengers included school children between the ages of 13 and 16.

"No child has been seriously injured," police said.
