A pile-up involving three London buses took place in Southall this Wednesday morning (13 October).

Two double deckers appear to have sandwiched a single decker on Cambridge Road in the collision but nobody has been reported as being seriously injured.

The bus at the front of the collision is a 482 which was rear-ended by a 95 followed by a H32.

Significant damage was done to all three vehicles.

A London Ambulance Service spokesperson said, "We were called at 9.34am today (October 13) to reports of a road traffic collision on Cambridge Road, Southall.

"We sent an ambulance crew, but did not take anyone to hospital.”

The cause of the collision is not known. There have been reports of bus drivers leaving the industry due to better wages being available for those with HGV licences which has resulted in more drivers being unfamiliar with their route.

A spokesperson for the Confederation of Public Transport said,“It is having an impact across the country.

"More bus drivers are quitting than we can recruit and talk of higher-paid jobs in road haulage is adding to the problem.

“Some have unquestionably been attracted to lorry driving by all this talk about wages increasing.”


Tom Cunnington, Head of Buses Business Development at TfL said,“We are aware of a collision at a bus stand in Southall involving three empty buses, where thankfully no other road users were injured. These buses have now been recovered and the stand is back in use. We are supporting the bus operators in an investigation to establish how this incident happened.”

He added that there were no significant delays or impact to traffic as a result of the incident.
