    Coach crash near Edinburgh bus station

    A coach heading from Perth to Edinburgh had an unexpected early terminus when it smashed into a tram post on York Place. The driver was taken to hospital as a precaution after police responded to reports of the collision at 12.10. The Parks of Hamilton coach was turning into St Andrew Square Bus Station when it crashed into the tram line.

    Delays continue on the tram network due to the collision. However, despite the narrow section of road, traffic continued to flow. Council engineers inspected the damage and superficial repairs will be completed in due course.

    A police spokeswoman said: “We were called to York Place around 12.10 today following a report that a bus had collided with traffic lights at the junction.”

    Naughty coach victimising its completely innocent driver like that! But everything's okay, traffic continued to flow! Thank the Heavens and the traffic flow gods!

    See how bad this coach is, how did it manage that manoeuvre?

    But who or what did the hurling? (They must be very strong whoever they are.)

    A speeding car in California was hurled into the upper floor of an office building

    The accident happened in Santa Ana

    Also "accident". Was it an accident that the car was speeding, all by itself?

    Not sure if this (Specsavers driver crashes into Liverpool lamppost) is evidence of improvement in the way these things are reported, or just done in this case to get in a few more jokes.

    @urchaidh nope: "The white company car appeared to have veered off the road at the junction between Menlove Avenue and High Street before crashing into the lamppost" no driver involved. Car needs eye test.
    (There doesn't seem to have been any snow involved, from the photo.)
