Seven people had a miraculous escape after the roof of a London bus was torn off when it crashed into a low bridge.
Pictures from the scene of devastation show the entire roof of the bus left at the entrance to the 12ft-high railway bridge on Portland Road in South Norwood.
London Ambulance Service posted pictures of the aftermath on Twitter following the accident at 9.10pm yesterday.
Four of them were taken to Croydon University Hospital, including three patients described as having minor injuries.
A hazardous response team, two ambulances, two medical response cars and a duty manager were called out. The fourth – a woman – was suffering with neck pain.
The injured passengers are believed to have been sitting on the top floor of the vehicle when the incident occurred. “Not suitable for double deck vehicles”.
The A215 Portland Road at Manor Road near Norwood Junction station was clsoed after the incident, and London Overground services between Sydenham and West Croydon were also suspended.
