Car hit by stray bus wheel
A COUNCILLOR from Bledlow Ridge got a huge surprise when a wheel from a public bus smashed into his car.
Nigel Cox, of Bledlow-Cum-Saunderton Parish Council, was driving home along Chinnor Road in Bledlow Ridge when he saw a Red Rose bus driving towards him.
To his great shock he saw a shadow go across the road in front of him and the wheel hit him in the front of his car.
It then bounced away across the road and into the hedge. The wheel had come off the bus.
Cllr Cox's car was written off.
He said: "It was quite scary. It was a big wheel- like a Land Rover wheel.
"Suddenly there is 150 kilos coming towards you.
"If the wheel had bounced up on the bonnet and through the windscreen it would have been RIP."
Cllr Cox reported it to the police as it involved a public service vehicle.
Police confirmed the collision was reported to them on November 5 at 4.37pm.
Red Rose Travel, which is based in Aylesbury, did not respond to a request for a comment.
