A young boy who was a passenger with his 76-year-old grandparents on the bus that smashed into a Holmer Green house, has spoken out about his terrifying ordeal.

Mark Hobbs, 11, was on the bus with grandparents Brian and Pauline, when it went careering into the house in Wycombe Road.

He said: “[The bus] turned the corner and it crashed into the house. My nanny and grandad were on the floor and there was glass everywhere.

“I was very scared and frightened because I did not know what would happen next. All the people who lived around there were really helpful and they gave us drinks and blankets.”

The trio were taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

Dad Jason and mum Karen were in Stratford-upon-Avon at the time of the incident, and rushed back as soon as they found out what had happened.

Jason said: “We got a call from a complete stranger saying there had been a bus accident and my parents and son were in taken to A&E.

“My wife was very scared and upset not knowing what had happened and so was I, but I had to try and stay calm as I was driving back.”

He said when the couple arrived back, they were relieved to see their son was unhurt, adding: “My dad had broken ribs and my mum had a cut to her head and bruising.

“She had to be kept in overnight because she had a head injury.

“We were relieved they were all alive. They were only a few minutes from home [when the crash happened].”

Mark added: “I was really happy to see my parents when they got there – I ran and gave them a big hug.

“It could have been a lot worse.”

The Carousel bus is the same one that Mark catches to go to school, and says he does not know if he will be able to get on it again when he goes back in the new year.

Jason said: “My wife and I are planning to take him on a bus with us over the holidays so he can decide how he feels about it.”

Police said the driver of the bus may have had a “medical episode”.
