Saw a picture of the scene. The picture was not good quality so without zooming in the picture, the reg looks like BX58.

Reports of an RTA on Hamstead Road involving a city bound 16 and a car, between the Tesco and garage, the road is currently closed with police taking photographs of the scene so it looks to be fairly serious. Thoughts to all involved.

I've heard a speeding BMW overtook bus and lost control. Just seen a picture of the bus, substantial front end damage, sure hope everyone is ok after that. Apparently there was a second accident last night too, as well as this one. Both involving OmniCitys, not as serious as this one
