On 7th Jan 2013 4:39pm, DBC said: I can remember another bus crash in the early 1950's. This took place in The Moorfield, Stoke Aldermoor, just past the junction with Michell Close. A double-decker bus going towards town left the road and ended up in the front garden of a house. I don't think any actual damage was caused to the building. The only "casualty" was one of the trees that lined the road, which was uprooted. This probably slowed the bus down, and stopped it crashing into the house.
Hi "DBC" (of Nottinghamshire), I think the accident to which you mention is the one that involved one of the Daimler CVD6 Buses on August 9th,1955!!! It was bus no.145 (KVC 145) that was involved this time and it injured a 42 year old woman pedestrian (from the Moorfield) when it skidded on the wet road surface and crashed into the garden wall of a House on the corner of Aldermoor Lane (No.41) and Molesworth Avenue (just down the road from the Moorfield!!!). Members of the Works Ambulance from the nearby Humber factory heard the screech of brakes and ran over to help the injured woman. She was taken to Coventry & Warwickshire Hospital afterwards by a Works Ambulance from Humber Ltd!!! Fortunately there weren't too many passengers on the bus itself and neither they or the driver and conductor were injured at all!!! The "HOLBROOKS" bound bus (on the "3" Route) received front end damage and was almost pointing in the opposite direction to which it was travelling when it came to a standstill, with most of the bus standing on the pavement and surrounded by bricks!!!

I don't think it was that one. The accident I remember definitely occurred at the junction of the Moorfield and Michell Close. I was at my grandmothers house a few doors away, and I remember seeing the crashed bus from her front garden. If you look on "Street View" you can even see that the roadside tree is smaller then others in the street, and is probably a replacement to the one knocked down by the bus.
