A woman was reportedly pinned under a double decker bus in north-west London on Thursday in an accident that injured 13 other people. 

Police said the woman, believed to be in her 30s, has been taken to a central London hospital with minor injuries following the incident at Ladbroke Grove, near the junction with Canal Way, about 11.51am. 

The Evening Standard quoted a witness as saying the bus crashed after trying to avoid a car accident in front of it.  

Thirteen other people who were on the bus, including the driver, were also hurt, police said, adding that “nobody is thought to be in a life-threatening or life-changing condition”.

Witness Karim Roundi, 25, who lives opposite the crash scene told the Standard that the accident happened after “someone stepped out onto a pedestrian crossing and a car slammed on its brakes”.

He said: “The car behind went into the back of it and the bus swerved out of the way to avoid colliding into them.

“It lost control and went up onto the pavement and hit a block of flats.”

Road closures are in place while emergency services deal with the incident, police said. 

No one has been arrested.
