TRAFFIC was backed up in Pembroke today (Wednesday, March 26) afternoon after a SIilcox bus collided with the bay window of a shop on Northgate Street.

Nobody was injured in the accident which happened just before 3pm.

Traffic was still down to one lane an hour later, police confirmed.

Just before 4pm, a Dyfed-Powys Police spokesman said: “Police attended a road traffic collision that occurred at approximately 2.55pm today (Wednesday, March 26) at Northgate Street, Pembroke.

“A bus has collided with the front of a business property in the street. No injuries have been reported. One lane closed at the moment.”

The Western Telegraph understands the bus collided with the bay window of Bee’s Knees when it pulled over to let an ambulance pass.

About six passengers were transferred to another bus. Silcox Coaches declined to comment.

Well the bus driver was allowing an emergency vehicle to get passed so I suppose they have nothing to apologise for.

Well, I suppose with hindsight it could have been forseen as its overhanging bay window on the 1st floor. When a motorist hears the siren wailing, you first look to hear from which direction its coming from and then pull in ASAP, where safe.
No one was hurt, so all is well.
Presume it will be rebuilt without the overhanging bay window.
Sod's law, really.
