A passenger was rushed to hospital after a bus crashed into a bungalow in Hessle on Friday morning.

The Yorkshire Ambulance Service says eight passengers and the driver were examined by paramedics at the scene. Three of them suffered minor injuries but one needed to be treated in hospital.

Witnesses say that just after 8am the East Yorkshire Motor Services bus had to swerve to avoid a refuse lorry and in doing so went through a garden wall and then struck the property.

Officers from Humberside Fire and Rescue examined the bungalow for damage, while Humberside Police closed off the road. The EYMS diverted its 66 service along Northolme Road.

One of the passengers was Sarah Fisher. She is thankful that everyone is OK, but she says she doesn’t think she will be using buses again in the future.

The bus went through the wall into the front lounge, according to Barry Keen, who is decorating the house with its owner, his brother-in-law. Mr Keen says his brother-in-law thought it was a wind-up at first when he told him what had happened. He is stunned by the incident, Mr Keen says.
