Three buses involved in Elephant & Castle collision leaving one injured

Three buses were involved in collision outside London South Bank University this morning.

One man suffered minor injuries as a result of the crash on London Road at around 9:50am, which involved both the 53 and 168 bus services.

A witness told the News that the collision left the 168 bus with smashed windows on its front and top – and the 53 service looked as if it had caught fire from it its back.

“The 53, the back part of it must have caught fire.”

A Met Police spokesperson confirmed the collision and said: “Three buses were involved in a collision where one man suffered minor injuries.
