    Belfast bus overturns, injures 30, nobody killed

    Belfast bus overturns, injures 30, nobody killed

    Thirty passengers on board a Belfast double-decker bus cheated death when it clipped a kerb and overturned yesterday.

    The Translink Metro 4A bus had just passed Belfast’s Central railway station at about 2.15pm  when it clipped a kerb, for reasons as of yet unknown and fell on to its side.

    The driver, who was badly injured, had to be cut out of his cab, whilst passengers, who were aided by passers-by, were taken to four hospitals across the city.

    Eyewitness Stacy Woods told the BBC:

    “It was quite dramatic. I ran up right away just to see if I could help out,” she said.

    “A lot of people were there on the scene and helped out.

    “A lot of people from the oncoming traffic just went over to help smash open the windows to get the people out. It was very public driven.

    “The guy I took to hospital and his baby were ok, that was all that mattered.”

    Ciaran Rogan of Translink said of the driver:

    “He remained in hospital overnight. He is much improved on the first reports yesterday,” he said.

    “He is obviously very traumatised and shocked, but in terms of physical injuries, it is not as bad as had initially been thought.

    “His medical condition is the first priority and after that there will be a medical investigation as to what happened to him immediately before the incident.”
