Woman killed in collision between buses at London Victoria Station


A woman was killed and three others injured when two buses crashed in central London, police said.

Metropolitan Police were called into the incident at Victoria Coach Station at 8:25 a.m. Tuesday. Images posted on social media show that a single-decker bus on Route 507 crashed into the back of another, causing damage to both vehicles.

The deceased woman is believed to be in her thirties. His relatives had not yet been informed, police said. Three other people were treated for non-life threatening injuries.

A spokesperson for the London ambulance service said he had been called to report a road collision.

“We sent three paramedics, two medics in cars, an advanced paramedic, an incident response officer, an advanced paramedic and our hazardous area response team. We also sent the air ambulance from London, ”she said.

“We treated three people there and took two of them to the hospital. Unfortunately, a fourth person died at the scene.

The bus station was closed shortly after the accident. A wide cord remains in place around the terminal. The two single-decker buses involved are visible, one with its windshield shattered and the other with a crumpled rear bumper.

Light blue screens and blue tarps, erected by police, remained in place covering most of the scene. A private ambulance arrived just after 12:30 p.m. and was seen backing up behind the screens.

Andy Byford, Commissioner of Transport for London, said: “We are extremely saddened that a woman has tragically died after a collision with a bus and our hearts are with her family and friends. We think of everyone affected by this incident and will support everyone as we can.

“We are urgently working with the operator of the two buses – Go Ahead London – and the police to investigate what has happened. “
