Bus and car crash on Paull Road, Paull

HUMBERSIDE FIRE AND RESCUE SERVICE report that there was a two vehicle road traffic collision involving a bus and a car on Paull Road, Paull yesterday (Friday 14th September 2012).

The incident was attended by a fire crew at 5.47pm and an adult male driver was released from the car by being placed on a spine board and taken out through the passenger door. He was transferred to Hull Royal Infirmary in an ambulance.

The bus was half in to the ditch, and stabilised by the Fire Service using a winch. This allowed paramedics to enter the bus to give precautionary check ups to three passengers and the bus driver. No further medical treatment was required.

This was the second incident near to Paull yesterday. At 4.27pm a fire crew attended a boat on fire on Paull Road, Saltend. This was a re-ignited fire from an earlier original incident at the boat on Thursday night.
