Bus and car collide in Hetton.

So did I.. 

Unless this forum has become over zealously moderated like a certain dictatorship in East Asia, or a Facebook group a lot closer to home!


RE: Bus incidents - Drifter60 - 28 Apr 2022

There was definitely a thread in the past…

On this, Bus Times seems to suggest the bus involved hasn’t yet returned to service.

Think as long as people handle these discussions sensitively - and don’t speculate on causes etc. - there’s no need to censor it.


RE: Bus incidents - Adrian - 28 Apr 2022

Unsure what has happened to the previous thread, but it's not been a deletion by the moderator team. We're really not bothered about accident/incident discussion on here, as long as it doesn't get into naming names.

Have a read of the Chronicle article and citaro5284's reply.

Not Shiney Row and not even between Washington and Easington.

RE: Bus incidents - Unber43 - 29 Apr 2022

65 (5392) crashed in Murton today, was 10 mins late, took a corner way to fast and hit a car by the looks of it, know there was a previous incident with the 65 where it hit the island at Hetton when turning due to a delivery truck (red paintwork is still there)

Howay man. Speculation and identifying drivers isn't the best idea.

Seems like an odd place for a fire to break out

Yeah, I mean it's not ideal it happening on a bend in a road, outside the entrance to a new estate. But if a fire is going to break out, it will break out. Wherever the bus is.


RE: Bus incidents - Unber43 - 14 May 2022

Services are currently using the Tyne bridge both ways.

Not unheard of for a wrecker to take that long to recover something.
