A crash involving two buses outside Victoria Station in London has killed one woman and left three people injured.

Police were called to London’s Victoria Station at 8.25am today, August 10, following an accident involving two buses.

A London Ambulance Service (LAS) spokesperson said that three ambulances, two medics, an advanced paramedic, an incident response officer and the hazardous area response team were sent to the incident. London’s Air Ambulance was also dispatched.

The woman who is believed to be in her 30s has sadly died despite the efforts from emergency services. The Met Police have said her next of kin have not yet been informed.

Three other people were injured and treated at the scene of the accident. Two of them were taken to hospital and the third was able to leave the scene, according to Evening Standard.

An eye-witness tweeted:  “A poor woman just got run over by a 507 bus at #Victoria Bus Station. Loads of people are tending to her. I really hope she is okay. She is underneath the front end of the vehicle…”

Andy Byford, TfL’s Commissioner, said: “We are extremely saddened that a woman has tragically died after a collision with a bus and our thoughts are with her family and friends.

“We are thinking of everyone affected by this incident and will support everyone however we can.

“We are working urgently with the operator of the two buses, Go Ahead London, and the police to investigate what happened.”
