A passenger has been treated for injuries at the scene of a bus crash in Halifax today.

The incident happened at 10.12am when the 832 Washer Lane bus hit a curb on Scarr Bottom Road and swerved in to a garden.

A woman was treated at the scene in the back of an ambulance for cuts and bruises, but fortunately nobody else was hurt.

Susan Lee, whose garden was flattened by the Centrebus vehicle, said: “Me and my husband Jeff are just in a state of shock really. But I feel more sorry for the bus passengers.

“There’s a drop at the edge of the garden, so it’s lucky the bus didn’t go any further. It could have been catastrophic.”

Centrebus staff were investigating the cause of the crash at the scene and the bus has now been removed.

Glen Hirst, Area Engineers Manager at Centrebus, said: “We wont know what caused the crash until we speak to the driver. He’s been taken back to the depot. We’re assuming he’s gone over the lip at the edge and it’s taken him over the side in to the garden.”
