Three critical in Vic bus rollover

One woman has been killed and dozens of passengers injured after a bus rolled in country Victoria this afternoon.

Mrs Mitchell was travelling home from a lawn bowls tournament, along with 29 elderly people, when their bus rolled and landed on its side on the Sunraysia Highway on Saturday.

The bus then rolled down an embankment and one of the passengers, believed to be a woman, died at the scene, police say.

Three others were also in a critical condition, with 12 people in serious condition also taken to hospitals in Ballarat and Bendigo, Ambulance Victoria Spokesperson John Mullen told Daily Mail Australia.

Another 18 people have required medical treatment, with three people sustaining serious injuries.

A relief centre set up at the Avoca Senior Citizens Centre treated 15 people for cuts and bruises.

The Ballarat district bowls division said the driver of the bus is the vice chairman of the club. "Thank god he's alright but I feel really sorry for the young girl who passed away and also the people who are injured".

A trio of air ambulances remain at the scene.

Dozens of emergency service workers have been dealing with the chaotic scene on the Sunraysia Highway, around 10 kilometres northwest of Avoca in the state's west.
