    Good job bus driver was on the ball

    I was expecting something much larger than that falling into the road. Looks like a long cardboard box!

    He had plenty of time to stop. If he was a second or so ahead then it'd be a different situation!

    "He had plenty of time to stop" this from the bus drivers point of view

    "If he was a second or so ahead then it'd be a different situation" and this from the cheeky block of concrete

    Can't believe it, no reinforcing bars in the concrete when made.

    Could 'have'...

    I saw this video too whilst the following one was linked on the same page, wish you could have seen the state of the corsa following the crash, but maybe there was a fatality so may not have shown the wreckage. Deffo brown trouser time for both parties.

    I think the problem is that she's driven from Aberdeen along a dual carriage way and maybe doesn't realise that the dual has ended and she's now on a junction. Then she gets to this fork where some oiks have stolen the road sign:

    You must be the local health and safety advisor, how very nice of you to contribute with your wisdom. Care to sum up the situation in Libya for us or maybe Japan?
