Broken-down First Great Western rail replacement bus hit by lorry

The BBC reports that three people have been injured after a broken-down rail replacement bus was hit by a lorry on the A34 in Oxfordshire.

Fifty people were onboard the First Great Western rail replacement service from Oxford to Didcot, when it was hit at Drayton at 00:30 GMT.

One of the three people taken to hospital had serious but non life-threatening injuries, police said.

Investigations are under way and the southbound carriageway remains closed.

It is shut from the Botley interchange to Milton interchange and is expected to remain closed for several hours. Diversions are in place.

The remaining passengers, who did not require hospital treatment, were taken to Abingdon Police Station.

The bus was a replacement for the 00:05 First Great Western service from Oxford to Didcot.
