Woman in her 30s dies as two London buses crash

A woman pedestrian has died, and two other people have been injured after two London buses crashed at Victoria Station.

The victim was aged in her 30s.

Her next of kin have yet to be informed.


Danielle Cain, a Big Issue seller, said:

“It was around 8am or 8:30am and I heard a woman scream, and a load of people gathered round.

“It was awful, I knew instantly something bad had happened.

“I was told later a woman had got trapped under a bus.”

One of the others injured was a bus driver.

Police officers were later seen examining the buses and photographing the scene.

Lee Kirby arrived at work at Victoria shortly after the incident.

He told the PA news agency:

“When I got here this morning the fire brigade were jacking up the bus, so someone may have gone under it.

That’s all we saw because it’s all been cordoned off.

“We’ve seen police taking statements from people this morning, but like I say it’s all been cordoned off while they’re doing their investigations.”

The Met Police said:

“Police were called at 08:25hrs on Tuesday, 10 August to reports of a collision involving two buses and three pedestrians outside Victoria Railway Station.

“Emergency services attended and immediately provided first aid.

“One of the pedestrians, believed to be aged in her 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene at 09:00hrs.

“Her next of kin have yet to be informed.

“Two other people were treated for non-life threatening injures.”
