A car “flew through the air” and demolished a bus stop in a dramatic crash on a busy Edinburgh road.
And he described how the Nissan had overturned and hit the bus stop. "The car flipped up, flew across the road, and then landed on its roof, wiping out the bus stop. It was a red Nissan and it was coming from the direction of Ferry Road. The car literally was about 10ft in the air, flying through the sky upside down. If somebody had been at the bus stop they would have been killed.
"Police came within minutes and then fire brigade to cut the driver out. The roof was crushed and he was trapped. Another car, a small black Toyota, with an elderly lady driver, was involved. It was driving in the direction of Ferry Road, opposite to the Nissan. The Toyota had its front onside smashed in.”
