Roof of double-decker bus completely ripped off by low bridge Incredible images have emerged of a double decker bus with its roof completely torn off after it drove under a low railway bridge.
According to local reports, there is a sign on the bridge which is near Cadbury’s World warning drivers of its low height.
There were no passengers on board the out-of-service National Express West Midlands bus at the time of the incident. Meanwhile, the driver escaped uninjured.
But witnesses described being shaken by the smash. Amy Tunney wrote on Facebook: “So a bus just drove under Bournville Lane bridge and took the top clean off.
Only just stopped shaking, the bang was incredible. Thankfully driver was ok and no passengers on [board].
Ambulance worker Ben Pallante described the crash as a slightly different end to my shift.
