A woman has been taken to hospital after her bus crashed into the back of a truck, just hours after an eerily similar crash in Sydney's west hospitalised nine people.

The front of the Manly-bound bus was severely damaged, the force of the crash sent the truck careering off Warriewood's Pittwater Road and into some roadside vegetation. 

The incident follows a similar crash on Tuesday morning, after a garbage truck collided with a bus carrying 20 people, nine people were rushed to hospital including the bus driver who was seriously injured.

There were only six people on the bus at the time, both drivers of the bus and truck involved escaped the crash unscathed.

'It's lucky there weren't more passengers on the bus and that no one was standing,' Northern Beaches duty officer Insp Gill Hough told The Daily Telegraph.

Insp Hough added the older female passenger who was injured only received a few cuts and bruises, but was taken to Mona Vale Hospital by ambulance.
