Terrifying moment bus crashes into a tree leaving two passengers injured
This is the terrifying moment a bus crashes into a tree on a residential street, leaving two passengers injured.
CCTV footage shows the bus colliding with the trunk in Shiregreen, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, on October 26.
A panel from the upstairs front window of the number 88 Stagecoach bus crashes onto the pavement immediately after the impact.
Two passengers sustained 'minor injuries' in the crash, which happened at 1.40pm and left the vehicle badly damaged.
The footage shows dents in the front of the bus and the glass double doors were smashed and left crooked, hanging out of the vehicle.
Phil Medlicott, managing director of the bus operator Stagecoach Yorkshire said two passengers had been treated for minor injuries.
He added that an investigation was underway.
Mr Medlicott said: 'Incidents like this are thankfully rare, but we take them very seriously if they do happen.
'Safety is our absolute priority and we will be carrying out a thorough internal investigation into the circumstances.'
