Four people have been taken to hospital after a crash on the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Four people have been taken to hospital after a crash on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

An accident which occurred between a Forest Coach Lines bus and another car closed two southbound lanes just after midday today.

Three people which were in the car were taken to Royal North Shore Hospital in a stable condition, and one of the bus passengers was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital.

All southbound lanes of the Sydney Harbour Bridge are now open, but a spokesman from the Transport Management Centre said traffic was still heavy.

Lane eight of the harbour bridge reopened at about an hour and a half later.
