Bus driver cleared over passenger death

A court in Kent has cleared a bus driver of causing the death of an 86-year-old passenger through careless driving.

Beatrice Meager was thrown from her seat when driver, Greg Emmerson, braked hard to avoid a turning van; she died later in hospital.

Mr Emmerson said seconds before he had checked for passengers at a bus stop but when he looked back he saw the van had ‘slammed its brakes on’.

The 26-year-old driver told Maidstone Crown Court he then ‘braked as hard as he could’.
