West of England bus advertising A Million Ways to Die in the West failed to injure a single person

No-one was hurt when a double-decker bus crashed into two cars and some railings in Emersons Green, on the northern outskirts of Bristol, at around 2.40pm on Monday afternoon.

A witness said that the driver of the number 48 bus said he caught his foot between the brake and accelerator pedal. Resident David Wybourn said the crash sounded "like thunder".

A First West of England spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that one of our vehicles, operating on Service 48 in Bristol, was involved in an incident on Monday afternoon.

"There were two passengers on board the bus at the time, neither they, nor the driver, have reported any injuries as a result of the incident. Incidents such as these are incredibly rare with the bus remaining one of the safest forms of transport in the UK."

Looks like a failure of health and safety to me. Perhaps if they weren't so busy keeping dogs from having fun.

Sorry, just had to take a swipe at the comment on the other story.

The comment you're referring to was from a spammer who searches for keywords before posting inane crap while hoping to improve their 'client's' Google rank by using their username as a link to their website.

They're a bloody nuisance.

It actually has the opposite effect judging by the number of emails I receive requesting that I remove such comments a couple of years down the line.

Anyway, I've deleted it now.
