Impatient bus driver causes severe road traffic accident

A bus passenger is to be awarded road traffic accident compensation from a bus company after a top orthopaedic surgeon was cleared of all blame in the incident.

The collision between a London bus and a Ferrari, which took place in July 2008 along Kensington High Street in London, caused a bus passenger to be thrown off her seat and suffer severe head injuries which have left her in a tetraplegic condition.

The driver of the bus had accused the consultant surgeon of causing the road traffic accident, claiming that the 53-year-old driver had stopped his Ferrari suddenly causing him to hit the bus's brakes heavily.

However, the High Court Judge dismissed the accusations and cleared the surgeon of all blame, stating that he "did not brake heavily or in an abnormal manner".

The judge went on to describe the bus driver as being impatient following a driving assessment that was carried out and concluded that he had become irritated after the surgeon had let two vehicles pass into the lane in front.

The injured passenger is expected to receive a seven-figure sum in road traffic accident compensation from the bus company.
