    Man in hospital after bus collision

    By David Brown on December 8, 2013

    A man has been hospitalised after he was hit by a bus in Hull city centre.

    Authorities have already launched an investigation into the bus collision incident which happened shortly after 1.30pm on Thursday in Ferensway, at the Portland Place junction.

    The victim is currently at Hull Royal Infirmary where he is receiving treatment for life-threatening injuries.

    “Our first thoughts are for the welfare of the person involved,” said a spokesman for Stagecoach.

    “Safety is our absolute priority. We will assist the police with their inquiries into this incident as well as carrying out our own investigation.”

    The single-decker bus was at the beginning of its route between the city centre and Kingswood Retail Park when the pedestrian was hit.

    Traffic in the area was majorly disrupted, with the road northbound between Paragon Interchange and Spring Bank closed until shortly after 4pm.

    Personal injury claim for bus collision

    Although it is not particularly common for someone to be hit by a bus, it can nevertheless be cause for a personal injury claim.

    If you are unfortunate enough to be injured in such an accident, Accident Advice Helpline can provide all the assistance you require.

    From who you should claim against to how much compensation you are entitled to, AAH has the answers.

    Call for changes

    Bus firms in Hull have long been calling for changes to be made in the city centre due to the high number of accidents, particularly around the entrance to the bus depot between St Stephen’s shopping centre and Paragon Interchange.

    Various measures have been brought in to try to deal with the problem, including the installation of a countdown on the crossing between the station and shopping centre last year, although accidents continue to occur.

    Hull City Council has declined to comment on whether any further action is being considered to try to alleviate the problem.
