Runaway bus crushes man

A bus worker is in a coma after a runaway bus crushed him at a depot in Edinburgh, southeastern Scotland.

Ronnie McGhie was working at Lothian Buses’ Annandale Street depot on Saturday 5th October when the accident occurred.

Reports suggest the vehicle was able to hit Mr McGhie — whose job involves moving, cleaning, and refuelling the buses — because its handbrake was not on.

The bus firm said it had carried out an investigation and sent a report to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive).
