Rose Friggi, 32, a mother-of-two from nearby Paradise Park, said she heard what sounded like an explosion last night, after a car collided with a bus killing one man and injuring another 13.
"I was up in the night because my baby was sick," she said. "I heard what sounded like an explosion. My husband went to work at about 3am and he said there were police cars and a helicopter at the scene", she said.
