The accident involved a Bretts Transport lorry near the entrance to its depot.
A Bretts spokesman said: “At this stage we are giving the emergency services our full support and co-operation.”
Bus operator First Eastern Counties Bus Company confirmed one of its vehicles was involved, but a spokesman did not comment further.
The East of England Ambulance Service said 16 casualties had been transferred to Peterborough City Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn.
