SALE'S traffic police were kept busy on Monday, following two accidents in York St within two hours.

About 3.30pm, a bus carrying school students and a car collided near the VicRoads office.

No students were injured, but the driver of the car, a man in his 20s, received minor injuries.

Senior Constable Adam Leenders of the Wellington Highway Patrol said the bus driver was expected to receive a traffic infringement notice.

In the second incident, a man in his 70s was airlifted to the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne with suspected fractures in both legs, following a collision between his car and a four-wheel-drive in King George Avenue (York St), Sale.

Two passengers in the car, aged 18 and 21, were taken to Sale Hospital with minor injuries.

Traffic was diverted around King George Avenue for about one and a half hours after the accident, which happened about 5.20pm.

Police, SES, CFA and ambulance attended.

Senior Constable Leenders said police would like to hear from witnesses, particularly the driver of a small grey sedan who may have driven past the accident site before the collision.
