A crime scene has been established and “the driver of the bus — a 58-year-old man — was taken to hospital under police guard for mandatory testing and assessment,” they said.

The area is being examined by specialist forensic police and a Crash Investigation Unit.

The Hunter region is replete with vineyards, kangaroos and native bushland, making it a popular spot for tourists and group outings.

A local mayor said the bus was believed to have come from a wedding reception, held at a nearby wine estate.

“We are still waiting for further details to come to light” Jay Suvaal, the mayor of nearby Cessnock, told ABC. “It does appear that it was a wedding chartered bus.”
