UK:
Passengers safe as train collides with bus

  : Tuesday October 17, 2000
A group of minibus passengers have escaped serious injuries by seconds as they bailed out moments before a 60mph train ploughed into their vehicle.
The bus, carrying 9 passengers became trapped between the automatic barriers of a level crossing at Pooley Green, near Egham in Surrey

The impact derailed the front carriage of the eight-car South West Trains train. It was left lying across the tracks at an angle of 30 degrees. The bus was pushed across gardens and into the wall of a nearby cottage.
