A man has been charged following investigations into a bus crash that left three people with serious injuries in the Southern Tablelands last year.

Shortly after 10am on Saturday 21 November, a bus carrying 57 passengers rolled on to its side on Sandy Point Road, Windellama, about 50km south-east of Goulburn.

Police from the Hume Local Area Command, Fire and Rescue NSW, Rural Fire Service and the Ambulance Service of NSW attended the scene.

Two passengers were airlifted to Canberra Hospital, another to Liverpool Hospital, and nine passengers were taken by road to Goulburn Base Hospital.

The 64-year-old male driver was treated at the scene and taken to Goulburn Base Hospital for mandatory testing.

Specialist investigators from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit, assisted by Hume detectives, attended the scene and started an investigation.

As a result of their inquiries, the driver was issued with a future court attendance notice for three counts of dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm and negligent driving occasioning grievous bodily harm.

His licence has also been suspended. He is due to appear in Goulburn Local Court on Tuesday 31 May.

Inquiries are continuing.
