Stupid Reporters...

Post  sah3367 on Tue Jun 04, 2013 1:01 pm

An item from our local "news"paper has it's typical bad reporting...

http://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/10462676.Bus_in_crash_with_car/?ref=twt

1) the bus was stationary at a bus stop (not mentioned)
2) with 1) in mind, the car must have hit the bus

Hopefully the driver and passengers were ok (I'll find out more tomorrow - I work for the bus company involved)

Regards,

Scooter

Sounds about right for the standard of reporting for a local rag. I knew a bus driver once who, whilst doing a school run, clipped a bus shelter with the edge of their bus. There was only slight damage to both the bus and shelter. The next day the headlines read in the local papers "Terrified school children in bus crash." The driver got the paper because they were interested to see that someone else'd had an accident the same day as them. As they read the story they suddenly realised that the report was about their minor incident. The local paper had blown it completely out of proportion. The driver said no one was hurt and the kids were laughing and joking about the whole thing!
