NAGOYA, Oct. 29 Kyodo

Fifty-five children and a tour guide sustained minor injuries Tuesday in a collision of two buses in Nagoya, central Japan, police said.

The accident occurred around 8:50 a.m. on the Nagoya Expressway when one of the buses hit another, which had pulled over due to traffic congestion, from behind.

The driver of the bus which caused the accident, Tsutomu Nomura, 33, said he was not aware the bus ahead of him had stopped as he was watching a signboard, the police said.

A total of 89 pupils and four teachers from Kuroda Elementary School in the town of Kisogawa, Aichi Prefecture, were aboard the buses on their way to a field trip to such places as a Toyota Motor Corp. plant, school principal Katsuhiko Kawata said.
