Bus firm promises investigation after four injured in Ulverston crash
Last updated at 08:52, Tuesday, 03 June 2014
A BUS company has pledged to carry out an investigation after passengers were injured in a collision with a lamppost in Ulverston.
Four people were treated for minor injuries after the X6 Stagecoach service from Ulverston to Barrow hit a lamppost on the A590 at Oubas Hill.
The vehicle’s windscreen was cracked and serious damage was caused to the door and the front bumper.
The incident was reported to police at 3pm and paramedics also attended the scene.
Motorists faced major delays as vehicles on the A590 stood at a standstill until the bus was cleared from the road and taken into the nearby Booths car park. It was later towed away.
Traffic returned to normal shortly before 4.30pm.
A spokeswoman for Stagecoach said: "At around 3pm today one of our vehicles was involved in an incident in which it collided with a lamppost on the A590.
“There were four passengers on board the vehicle at the time who are thought to have sustained minor injuries.
“All were treated at the scene by paramedics and later continued their journeys on another bus. Our first thoughts are for the welfare of those involved in this incident.
"Safety is our absolute priority. We will be carrying out a full investigation into this incident."
