Man hopes to receive road accident payout for bus shelter accident

A man, who was standing in a bus shelter near Blackpool when it was struck by a double-decker bus, is hoping to receive a road accident payout from the bus company.

The 49-year-old man was waiting for a bus in June 2011 when the bus crashed into the shelter, badly cutting a 17-year-old in the incident. Eyewitnesses and local business were amazed that nobody was killed in the accident.

A similar accident had occurred three years before when another bus crashed into the same shelter.

It has been reported that the man is claiming the accident left him mentally scarred and he described himself as a "bag of nerves" after witnessing the 17-year-old girl being struck with glass.

Since the accident, the man has been unable to contact the bus company about the accident, despite ringing them up.

It is not known how much the road accident payout is likely to be if the man is successful in his bus crash claim.
