Six of the ten male passengers on the bus were taken by ambulance to Mid Argyll Hospital in Lochgilphead.

One has since been transferred to the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow and another to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.

The remaining four passengers were taken to Campbeltown Hospital for treatment.

The road was closed in both directions between Tarbert and Kennacraig for police investigations and reopened at 4.50pm.
