Police and ambulance called as bus narrowly avoids hitting van
TWO PASSENGERS were hurt when the bus they were travelling on was involved in a near-miss.
The Solent service was travelling along Portsmouth Road in Cosham, and forced to brake sharply after a van pulled out from the junction near McDonald’s.
The bus swerved as the driver attempted to avoid a collision, witnesses said.
An ambulance was called to the scene at 9.46am.
Paramedics completed a thorough check of all the passengers.
A spokeswoman from South Central Ambulance Service said: ‘We sent an ambulance to the scene.
‘Nobody was badly injured and no-one needed to be taken to hospital.’
Police were called to the scene and took statements from individuals, including the driver of the van. Nobody was arrested.
A police spokesman said: ‘We were called at 9.50am regarding a collision with a bus and a van outside McDonald’s in Cosham where two people received minor injuries.’
Neither vehicle were damaged and there was no traffic disturbance, shortly after the bus resumed its journey.
