TITLE
Mixer reverses into Bus
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
United Kingdom
ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
In a recent incident a truckmixer collided with a bus parked in a bus terminus.

To gain access to the delivery site the truckmixer needed to pass through the terminus, then turn around and reverse onto the customer’s site. As the driver began to reverse the truckmixer, he did not notice the bus parked at the stop and struck the rear offside corner of the vehicle with the discharge chute of his vehicle.

Although the bus was empty at the time and no one was injured, this was a public place and shortly afterwards there were pedestrians alighting from buses at other stops.

The consequences of this incident could have been far worse than the asset damage that resulted.

The driver reported the incident immediately to his Manager and supplied the attached photograph
