THIRTY-three people, including 27 schoolgirls, have been taken to hospital after a school bus collided with a truck north-west of Melbourne.

The crash took place on the Western Highway at Bacchus Marsh about 3.15am (local time).

The bus, with students on board, rolled down an embankment.

One girl suffered serious injuries, as did the male truck driver.

The other 26 students on the bus, along with four adults and the bus driver, have been taken to hospital for observation.

The students were on their way to Melbourne Airport where they were set to travel to a space camp in the US.

The bus, with students on board, rolled down an embankment.

The Melbourne-bound lanes of the Western Highway are expected to remain closed for several hours and motorists are urged to take an alternative route.
