Longstanton: Busway Crash

Cambridgeshire Police are investigating a crash between a car and a guided bus.

The collision happened at the guided busway junction in the village of Longstanton, near Cambridge, at 6:50am today (Friday).

Two people who were travelling on the bus were left with minor injuries.

The B1050 between Longstanton and Willingham was partially blocked following the crash.

Police are now investigating the cause of the crash.

The collision was the fourth reported crash on the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway since it opened in 2011.

Andy Campbell, Managing Director of StageCoach East, which runs the majority of services on the busway, said: "You're just as likely, or more likely, to have an incident at a crossroads or a roundabout anywhere across the county than you are on the busway.

Even on the occasions where we have had accidents, we've had no serious injuries, and I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be considered as safe as any other form of public transport."
