An 81-year-old woman was seriously hurt and five others were injured when the car she was driving collided with a Swiss PostBus in the canton of Fribourg on Tuesday.

The incident occurred at 4.30pm at the village of Bundtels in the northern part of the canton, southwest of Bern, the Swiss capital, cantonal police said.
