Bus driver dies after falling ill at the wheel and crashing into a garden

A bus driver has died after falling ill at the wheel and crashing into a garden.

The man was driving a double-decker vehicle through Oldbury in the West Midlands this morning when he suffered a ‘medical episode’.

Emergency services rushed to the scene after the bus crashed into the wall of a front garden this morning.

Paramedics battled to save the driver’s life but nothing could be done.

There were no passengers on board at the time and no one else was hurt in the incident. 

Pictures from the scene of the incident showed the bus wedged on top of a small garden wall, inches from a house.

The sign on the front read ‘not in service’ and a road was cordoned off.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Police said: ‘A bus driver has died after suffering a medical episode in Oldbury this morning. 

‘The bus collided with a wall at the junction of Titford Road and Wolverhampton Road at around 7.40am.

‘There were no passengers on the bus and no one else has been injured. Road closures are in place which will be lifted in due course.

‘Our thoughts are with the loved ones of the man.’
