Don't get why they had to shut the whole road when there was no collision?

Either the police are culpable for abruptly closing the road with the result that the man was hurt as the bus stopped, or, as I believe to be the case, the police closed the road to investigate the scene after the bus had to stop suddenly to avoid a car. How clumsy can a writer be and still be employed by The Bucks Free Press? As the headline is written it is apparent that the road closure caused the injury, rather than vice versa.
