A woman will be charged after colliding with a bus and blowing over five times the legal limit in Penrith.

About 6.30pm last night, a 48-year-old woman was driving a Nissan Micra on Lawson Street, Penrith, when she collided with a bus.

As a result of the crash the bus driver and about seven passengers were unable to exit the bus and required firefighters to free them.
