That's rather a strange comment. 4 dead, real cool!!!!!

Why Sky feel the need to show us is beyond me, a description would be enough.

I wonder if there are more graphic video's than that flying around

People are generally fascinated by images of death and destruction.

Sad story though.

man thats sad, my heart goes out to those people. In the video you see the guy go flying across the road at the beginning! What makes people do idiotic things like this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i can just imagine one of the reporters thinking "Man, this is so boring i wish something would happen!" then BAM that comes along!

that sounded inappropriate, sorry if anyone was offended.

cool isnt the word, i meant it was strange that someone managed to get an action shot and stranger than Sky posted it.

Considering that in the picture the collision has just happened, why is the official in the background looking in the other direction??

Its true...someone in my first year of uni committed suicide and there was someone going around if they images of it!
I did offer some photos of mine (not of the actual incident) to the BBC (the office was just round the corner) and they werent interested and just put up pure photos of the student halls nothing more...not even the people who come to see what happened which surprised me, it was like this is where i happened and there is no flowers, no nothing!

A non-graphic video on the BBC News site from the other side of the road, showing the car miss the bus and smash into a monument. I don't think this version shows anyone being hit, and the car is the focus of the video. It also shows the reaction of the Royal Family on the bus:

Can always rely on the BBC to stay away from the gore.

is this classed as a terrorist attack?

or was it wasnt an accident?
thought they would have jumped on the bandwagon with this.

Makes a novel change from dying of swine flu, I suppose.

I think it depends on the driver....

If he/she is an asian person then it will be classed as terrorism

Or if he/she is of any other race it will said to bea tragic accident or the person was mentally disturbed!!!!!!!!!
