    No .It can't have been going fast either. That is a busy but slow stretch leading up to the junction at Latchmere road. There's a bus stop 15/ 20 yards back at Asda's where the bus would have certainly stopped,I would be very surprised if it was doing more than 10 mph on that stretch.

    I saw they were getting ready to move it about !4:00, so I guess it should be out by now. I guess they will have to check the buildings are safe
    and any bits of road or pavement that may have been damaged. A blessing that no one was seriosly injured.

    I remember a similar thing happened in Crouch End in 2001.
    The house and shop had to be demolished before they could move the bus out as it was so unsafe - see above pic.

    Hopefully not as bad with the crash last week.

    I know!!
    I can't remember the exact details of the crash now, there is a small roundabout at that spot and the road is not very wide, I can't recall whether the driver was taken ill or just overshot this island.
