I am not surprised at this collision caused by Stagecoach. Their drivers in that area believe that the road belongs to them and pull out on you all the time. I just hope the golf driver sues them for every penny.

The damage is to the front of the bus, so if the driver pulled out in front of somebody and caused the accident, somebody must've gone through a red light.
There are no bus stops along Speedwell Street, or Thames Street, that aren't on the main carriageway, so I'd love to know where these buses are pulling out of in front of you?

Can't see anything in the article blaming either side so where has this come from?

The bus was on the main road and therefore had the right of way. The golf turned out of the cut through from Thames Street into the path of the bus!
