I was in Birkenhead earlier and a bus had came out of the station and hit an elderly lady, she was trapped under the wheel and they had to jack it up. I dont know any more about this, was very tragic

Really!!!

Thats odd, the bus station seems really organised and well sign posted etc etc.... She must not have been looking properly. Sad to hear it tho.

Yes I heard she had to be amputated on spot. I didnt want to watch too much as its grim, I dont need that in my mind.

I was down there before and wondered why all the traffic was backed up - this explains it.

Well IMO the bus drivers dont try to slow down for peds, Iv often seen them rag it out the depo and thought it looked like a 'game' for them.

That is really bad luck, slipping under a bus cos it had rained.

They should do away with ramps at pedestrian crossings. They are dangerous when wet and slippy. I know you need them for disability scooters but they should make the slope more gradual and put hand rails there for people to grab onto if they do slip.

The road surface has always been troublesome in that area. At first it was all block paving but it started to subside causing large puddles during wet weather so it had to be redone.
