RCV and bus collide

A London bus has been in collision with a refuse collection vehicle and three people received slight injuries.

According to media reports, the 106 bus was at a zebra crossing when it was struck by the vehicle, which belongs to Tower Hamlets Council.

There was a hole on the side of its top deck, while debris from the collision was strewn across the road.

The Standard said an adult in their 60s and two children were taken to hospital as a precaution but their injuries were not serious.

Tony Akers, Transport for London’s head of bus operations, was quoted as saying: “A route 106 double deck bus, operated by Arriva, was involved in a collision with a lorry on Cambridge Heath Road at the junction with Three Colts Lane, E2.

”Emergency services attended the scene. There will be a full investigation into the incident.”
