Four people have avoided serious injury despite a collision between a double decker bus, a 4×4 and a house.
The incident happened at about 6.45am this morning in Keresley Road, Coventry.
Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a double decker bus that was up against a house; the house had sustained structural damage. A Land Rover Discovery was near-by with front end damage.
“There were three people on the bus. The driver, a 44 year old man had sustained a graze to his right knee but was otherwise unhurt. A 27 year old man who had been on the rear seat had a minor laceration to his lower right leg and a man estimated to be in his 50s had a minor graze. All three were discharged after treatment at the scene.
“The driver of the Discovery, a 54 year old man had managed to get out of the vehicle himself and was treated for shock, but again was discharged.
“Thankfully, despite the damage to the house, no-one inside had been hurt.”
