Three persons sustained injuries when the bus of a private engineering college fell on its side on the Idigarai- Thudialur Road on Tuesday morning.

According to police sources, the college bus was on its way to Thudialur to pick up students, when the accident took place.

In order to avert hitting a two-wheeler while negotiating a curve, the bus driver steered the vehicle, which hit the wall of a culvert.

In the impact, the bus fell on its side injuring the driver, Pandian (38), and assistant Sivakami.

Murali (32), the two-wheeler rider, also sustained injuries. Investigations are on, sources said.
