The bus was carrying students from the city of Bialystok to Czestochowa in southern Poland, the home of the country's most sacred Roman Catholic shrine.

"There was a head-on collision as the bus traveling from Bialystok hit a lorry traveling from Warsaw," said Jacek Dobrzynski, a spokesman for police in the northeastern city.

Dobrzynski said more than 20 other passengers were taken to hospitals. The force of the impact turned the bus around, he added, reports the AP.
