Bus collision shuts road
The crash caused long traffic queues while the incident and lamppost were cleared from Oxford Road THE windscreen of a bus was left crumpled and smashed after a bus crashed into a lamppost in Uxbridge.
Oxford Road was closed while police dealt with the aftermath of a collision on Thursday last week.
Pictures and video taken from the crash scene reveal the scale of the damage to the front of the 222 double decker bus.
Other images have shown the extent of the efforts to recover the bus wreckage and clear the road.
The Metropolitan Police said the driver of the bus was injured in the collision which happened during the morning rush hour.
But no one was seriously hurt. A spokesman said on the day: “Officers attended and found a bus had been involved in a collision with a lamppost, which had then fallen across the road.
“The London Ambulance Service (LAS) and London Fire Brigade also attended.
“The road has been closed.
“None of the passengers on the bus were injured. The driver was treated at the scene by paramedics for minor injuries.”
A Get West London reader said at around 9am that the road was ‘very busy but it’s moving.’
Seven bus routes were diverted following the crash.
