AN IPSWICH Grammar School teacher was injured yesterday after being hit by the open cargo door of a moving bus.
Police said the incident was reported outside the school on Woodend Rd about 3.30pm.
It was thought the bus was travelling at low speed and kept driving after the collision - with the driver apparently unaware of what had happened.
The teacher, 63, was treated for back injuries by Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics on the footpath outside the school.
The paramedics put the man on a backboard before he was put on a stretcher and taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital for further assessment.
Police were yesterday making efforts to contact the bus company involved and attempt to identify the driver.
A student spoke to police while teachers held up a sheet to shield their colleague from the sun.
