NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 28/09/2016

An out of control bus has crashed 200m down a Hamilton hill, stopping just metres of short of a hospital building.

Emergency services were called to the accident off Pembroke Street on Thursday morning.

Parked while the driver was on a break, the bus rolled down a hill, crashing over an embankment and narrowly avoiding a Waikato Hospital admin block with about 15 staff inside.

A police spokeswoman said the cause of the crash was being investigated.

Fairfax Media reports one person was onboard the bus as it careened down hill.

Police said there were no reports of injures.
