Motorcyclist ‘sandwiched’ and 20 others hurt in four vehicle smash in Barcelona

TWENTY passengers were injured and a motorcyclist escaped with a broken leg after being trapped between a taxi and two buses in a Barcelona crash.
None of the bus passengers were seriously hurt in the collision involving four vehicles, although the motorcyclist was taken to hospital for treatment for the fracture.
The incident meant that traffic was brought to a standstill in the Plaza de Espanya for a little more than an hour.
Apparently, the accident happened when a taxi braked hard and the motorcycle hit him. A bus was also unable to stop in time and hit the motorcycle and finally another bus crashed into the first. The motorcyclist was sandwiched between the taxi and the first bus.
A passenger on the first bus explained that the vehicle braked twice: “Then people started screaming, glass broke. Most of the passengers were sitting because the bus was empty.
“I got a wound on my lip because I hit the seat in front of me.”
