Bus and lorry in road traffic accident results in two casualties

A collision between a lorry and a bus in east London resulted in injuries to two passengers, who may be eligible to claim road traffic accident compensation.

Two ambulances, a paramedic responder and an air ambulance converged at the scene of the accident in Woolwich Road, Charlton, with 20 firefighters from Woolwich, Greenwich and Lewisham fire stations.

The 45-year-old woman bus passenger whose arm was trapped by the vehicles' collision had to be released by firefighters before being taken to the Royal London Hospital for treatment.

The other injured woman, who suffered minor head injuries, was taken by road to Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

With the road closed for emergency services to deal with the bus crash, there were severe traffic delays in the area for several hours.

When the Metropolitan Police has completed its inquiries into the collision and, if necessary, liability for the road accident has been established in court, the personal injury victims may wish to contact a solicitor with a view to claiming compensation for their pain, suffering and loss of earnings from the employers of either or both the bus and lorry drivers.
