    National Express crash on the M4/M25

    most of you will of seen this on the news?

    well how about this one on new years day around 8pm i was at work and see 2 people get killed under a bus No436 when the driver had a heart attack/passed out at the wheel ?
    went up the kerb an run over 2 people not the best thing to go see
    i can tell you

    why was this not all over the news it was out side the Mi5 building in london
    not they did not want the bad press did they?
    why not they had just done a 33% rise in the ticket price

    Because it was an accident and not human error so no one at fault.

    at the time when the express coach was on the news they did not know what had happened or that it was driver error or a mechanical error.

    apparently they guy who crashed that bus is knowen for speeding and has had several warnings in work for it

    but this will never come to light due to the bus company not wanting the bad publicity of having knowen that he was a speeder

    and that info came from someone who worked with him

    without sounding like i dont care, i dont think there is any need to devote such a massive amount of news time to this story, its been all over the media since it happened.
    there are so many tragedies happening all the time that we never hear about.

    Sounds pretty scary, I wouldn't like to see anyone been killed like that - or anyone been killed, for that matter.

    Do you have to do give a witness statement of some sort?
