A rather dramatic looking crash took place at Brooks Bar at the junction of Kings Road and Upper Chorlton Road yesterday afternoon. The Stagecoach Manchester MAN single-decker on the 15 route (Manchester - Flixton) was reportedly involved in a collision with a green Volkswagen Polo. The bus then smashed through a set of metal railings and into the side of the Terrirorial Army Barracks.
The Manchester Evening News reports that twelve people from the bus, including the driver and a baby, went to hospital but did not suffer serious injuries. The report also features a spectacular photo of the crash that has to be seen to be believed.
