UK: One died, two injured in a car accident in Manchester


London: A woman in her 50s has died, and two others are injured after being hit by a double-decker bus in the United Kingdom’s major city, Manchester.

The incident took place on Sunday night when the group was at a bus stop in the Piccadilly area of the city centre when tragedy struck.


The fifty-year-old woman is in hospital with severe injuries following the collision. A man aged about 60 was treated for minor injuries shortly after 9.30 pm.

One eyewitness informed about the incident, ‘I just saw the bus suddenly mount the kerb and crash into the bus stop.’There were hundreds of people standing around trying to help. The police were here within minutes.’

The bus remained at the scene to help police officers to conduct the investigation. Stagecoach Manchester has confirmed that one of its vehicles has been involved in a severe incident.

While concerning the accident victims, a spokesman said their first concerns are for those affected by the incident and their families.

‘Safety is our absolute priority, and we are supporting the investigation into the circumstances involved in any way that we can.’

The road was taped off between Oldham Street and Lever Street until around 6 am this morning and the bus stop outside Travelodge remains closed.


Officers are appealing for anyone with a dash or helmet-cam footage of the collision, or the area in the moments beforehand, to get in touch.
