Armstrong: Driver lucky he wasn’t more seriously injured

Alliance Councillor Kellie Armstrong has said it is fortunate the driver of the bus which crashed into the sea on the Portaferry Road did not sustain more serious injuries.

She said: “Mt husband Barry, who is deputy station officer with Portaferry coastguard, was called to the scene early on Wednesday morning.

“I came past the scene on my commute to work this morning and there was a substantial chunk out of the wall on the passenger side.

“The bus driver is lucky he did not sustain worse injuries, and was not thrown through the front window.

“It was windy and dark this morning, the tide was out at the time of the incident and it is lucky the tide was not in or the bus would have been submerged.”
