Monday 20th March 2017 – 12.00pm – Murray MacGregor.

Four people have avoided serious injury despite a collision between a double decker bus, a 4×4 and a house.

The incident happened at about 6.45am this morning in Keresley Road, Coventry.

Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a double decker bus that was up against a house; the house had sustained structural damage.  A Land Rover Discovery was near-by with front end damage.

“There were three people on the bus.  The driver, a 44 year old man had sustained a graze to his right knee but was otherwise unhurt.  A 27 year old man who had been on the rear seat had a minor laceration to his lower right leg and a man estimated to be in his 50s had a minor graze.  All three were discharged after treatment at the scene.

“The driver of the Discovery, a 54 year old man had managed to get out of the vehicle himself and was treated for shock, but again was discharged.

“Thankfully, despite the damage to the house, no-one inside had been hurt.”
