The double glazed window only smashed on the outside with the eyewitness noting there was an elderly lady seated at the window at the time who was remarkably lucky not to have been badly injured. Others on the bus were shocked by the ordeal.

The Driver returned to base to change the bus leaving the passengers shaken and half an hour late on their trip.
