Stanley Travel, the bus company that has admitted liability for a crash involving two school buses in County Durham in June has given ITV Tyne Tees a statement, which claims that their driver was unconscious at the time of the collision.
“We are able to confirm that our insurance company has agreed to accept liability following the accident on 3rd June. We are also able to confirm that the driver of our bus blacked out moments before the incident, and the medical evidence strongly suggest the driver was unconscious at the time of collision.
We hope that a speedy settlement will assist the injured passengers in obtaining any additional help and support they require."
