Double-decker smashes into a car as it VEERS into bus lane in heart-stopping crash


A bus and four cars were involved in a multi-vehicle crash on the Small Heath Highway as a double-decker smashes into a car after it pulled out into a bus lane. 

What Happened?

Three people had a lucky escape after the bus smashed into the dark-coloured BMW, which then careered into three other cars in Birmingham.

It follows a car driver pulling out into a bus lane while queuing in busy traffic, BirminghamMail confirms.

Emergency services were called to the busy dual carriageway following the collision at around 3.40pm on Wednesday.

Number of Injured

A woman, a teenage girl and a boy were treated at the scene by paramedics but incredibly avoided serious injury. There were no other reports of anyone being hurt.

Footage of the horrific incident shows the impatient driver pulling out into a bus lane while queuing in busy traffic before crashing into the bus as it hurls along the dual carriageway. 

Social media users questioned who was in the wrong – with many pointing the blame at the BMW driver but others saying the bus appeared to be going too fast.

The Accident Sent Tongues Wagging

One user said: ‘Cars fault 100%, he shouldn’t have pulled into that lane. But why was the bus going that speed in the 1st place?’

Another said: ‘Even tho it looks like the bus was going fast, it was the car drivers fault of going into the bus lane – correct?’

One added: ‘Boomer driver needs to check mirrors.’
