Bus Overturns

What a dreadful incident to have occurred at East Bridge Street in Belfast, where a double-decker bus overturned and injured about thirty passengers and the driver.

It mounted a pavement at the main railway station terminus and fell on its side. Judging by the damage done to the bus's near-side, it must have hit the station building prior to flipping over.

Had any other vehicle - particularly a car or bike - been on the adjacent lane, the incident could have been even more serious. The bus could easily have fallen on top of any adjacent vehicle.
