Agra: Twenty-five children travelling in a school bus had a miraculous escape early Saturday when their vehicle overturned after being hit by a speeding car on Fatehpur Sikri Road in Agra, police said.
Some students suffered minor injuries and a couple in the car was seriously hurt.
The accident took place at Patholi on the Fatehpur Sikri Road around 7 a.m. when the students were going to school in the bus.
The couple in the car was from Kolkata. The two were going to Fatehpur Sikri monument, 40 km from Agra.

Soon after the accident, villagers rushed to the spot and rescued the trapped children.
They were sent home after first aid.
