Expert Opinion
This was clearly a very serious accident that endangered not only those travelling on the bus but those on the pavement and in the shop the bus collided with.

"A number of people have suffered injuries, some of them serious, as a result of the incident and it is imperative a thorough investigation is conducted to determine exactly what caused the crash, as those involved will understandably want answers about what happened.

"Through our work we have seen the long-term impact incidents like this can have, not only physically for those injured, but psychologically for those on-board the bus or those who witnessed the collision. This incident could have resulted in the loss of life and it is vital a transparent and thorough investigation is conducted in a bid to prevent similar incidents in the future.
