Passengers Trapped As Bus Crashes Into A Shop In London
Passengers are trapped on the top deck of a London bus which crashed into a kitchen shop on a busy high street today, sparking morning rush hour chaos. Police said there were ‘casualties’ after the crash on the A3036 in Battersea, South West London, with two fire engines and three fire rescue units sent to the scene.
Firefighters with cutting gear were trying to rescue two women trapped on the top deck of the bus, but added that the passengers were ‘both conscious and breathing’.
Officers were called just before 7am today to reports of a bus hitting a building on Lavender Hill, near the major commuter hub of Clapham Junction train station. Photographs and videos posted on social media showed the vehicle on the pavement and smashed into the front of the Poggen Pohl Kitchen Design Centre.
Glass could be seen shattered across the ground and paramedics were tending to people on the top deck of the number 77 double-decker bus.
Police said paramedics had treated ‘a number of passengers’ and the bus driver had been taken to a hospital in South Londona
