Video by local resident Darren Russell shows people banging and shouting from inside the bus.
Avon and Somerset Police said the incident, which also involved a motorcyclist, took place at around 6 am Tuesday morning on Quantock Road in Bridgwater.
“A total of 54 patients were triaged at the scene. It is too soon to confirm if any of these patients have life-threatening injuries, however 26 people are being treated as walking wounded,” Avon and Somerset Police Superintendent Paul Wiggington said in a statement shortly before 1:30 pm.
