Hit and run bus driver

The collision occurred at 4pm on Friday 16 April 2010 at the junction of Bristol Bridge and Baldwin Street in Bristol. A cyclist and a single-decker white coach or bus were stationary at the traffic lights. When the lights changed the bus moved forward and knocked the cyclist to the floor causing quite serious injuries. The bus driver, a woman, stopped and briefly spoke with the cyclist before driving off into Baldwin Street.

An investigation has begun to identify the coach and driver as well as any witnesses to the collision.


A CYCLIST was hospitalised with facial and head injuries after colliding with a bus in Weston.

The crash happened in Shrubbery Road on Friday at about 3.30pm.

The cyclist is a male in his 30s
and he struck the windscreen of the bus.

Or just possibly the front of the bus struck him…
