The collision happened just after midnight on Sunday on the A34 in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, said police.

A nine-year-old girl and a 19-year-old woman, who were also in the vehicle, are seriously injured in hospital.

A Cheshire Police spokesman said the nine-year-old girl was in a critical condition and the 19-year-old was in a serious condition.

The spokesman added: "The family are being supported by specialist officers at this difficult time."

A number of casualties from the minibus were treated at the scene and taken to hospital.

Police are appealing for witnesses.
