Oh dear! Hanson 375, XVH133 a AEC/Hanson Regal/Regent rebuild of 1963 with Roe H37/28F body.
Having failed to pull up in time a hapless Austin A60 provided the stopping power, but not before 375 had pushed the Cambridge into the back of the car in front. Thankfully no one was hurt.
It was a wet dismal Saturday morning in 1968, the bus was full with standing passengers and being seated near the back on the lower saloon all I felt was a slight jolt. I wasn't even aware we had been involved in an accident until the driver opened the doors and passengers started getting off.
