Harrowing story of bus crash used to educate drivers

In the past year, 12 people have been killed in accidents involving London buses, and a further 838 required hospital treatment for injuries.

The harrowing story of a woman who was killed and a toddler who lost part of her leg after a London bus ploughed into them, is being told to drivers to teach them about road safety.

Sarah Hope was also badly injured in the crash, which killed her mother and seriously injured her daughter, Pollyanna.

Transport for London is using a video about the 2007 crash to help educate bus drivers about the “mindsets” of pedestrians and cyclists in the hope that it will improve road safety.
