Several injured after two buses crash and plough into Argos store

Several people have been injured after two buses crashed into each other before ploughing into an Argos store in a busy city centre.

One of the buses was said to be coming down George Street, in Nottingham, when it turned off the road and smashed into another travelling in a different direction. One of the buses then kept going and crashed into the shop, a witness said.

They continued: ‘It was like something from an action movie. Loads of people were screaming and I could see blood all over the windows of the bus. It’s an absolute miracle no one died.’

At least one passenger was taken from a bus on a stretcher, while several others were treated by paramedics at the scene.

It is unclear how many people were hurt in the incident, but one of the bus drivers was confirmed to be among them.

Nottinghamshire Police said none of the injuries are believed to be ‘life-threatening or life-altering’.

A spokesperson continued: ‘Officers from were called just before 4.10pm to a report of a collision between two buses where one of the buses went into a shop.

‘Officers are currently at the scene managing traffic and establishing the circumstances around the incident.’

The road was closed while emergency services dealt with the crash but it has since been reopened.


An Argos spokesperson said: ‘Our Parliament Street store is temporarily closed following an incident. We are supporting the police and will reopen as soon as we are able to.’
