A 68-year-old man has been charged with careless driving causing injury in relation to a tourist bus crash in January.

The bus crashed down a bank and into a stream at the intersection of State Highways 47 and 48 in the central North Island on January 15, injuring 15 British and American tourists.

It was reported at the time that the bus was travelling along SH48, the access road to Whakapapa and Mt Ruapehu, when it crossed the T-shaped intersection with SH47 and plummeted down the bank.

The driver will appear in Taumarunui District Court on April 13, police say.
