A Rainham cleaner has been left in shock and feeling very shaky after witnessing a bus driver hit her parked car and drag it along the road earlier this morning.
Lisa was cleaning a property in Frederick Road when she heard a crunching noise and looked out the window.
Lisa told the Havering Daily:
“I was cleaning upstairs when I heard this loud crunching noise. I looked out the window to see that the bus had literally moved my car along the road. It has damaged all the front of the car and all down one side.
“The bus driver was very apologetic and also quite shaken up“.
Frederick Road is a tight road with often lots of restrictions that cause obstructions to drivers.
It is believed the bus driver swerved the 365 to avoid an oncoming lorry and accidentally hit Lisa’s car.
“I need my car for work to get me to all my cleaning jobs. I don’t know how I’m going to manage now.”
A Frederick Road resident who witnessed the incident said.
“The incident only happened because the bus had to make room for the lorry. Residents have been complaining for some time about the lorries driving down Frederick Road. The road is barely wide enough for the buses, and since the new housing development started we have seen an increase in the number of lorries using Frederick Road to access the site. It’s dangerous and it was only a matter of time before this would happen.”
