Three hurt after bus hits scaffolding in Aberdeen

Scene of accident

Three people were injured when a bus hit scaffolding on an Aberdeen street after colliding with a car.

The First Aberdeen incident happened on Union Street beside the Summer Street junction at about 11:40.

Two people were taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, and a third person was treated at the scene. None of the injuries was serious.

A section of Union street was closed, and Aberdeen City Council advised people to avoid the area.

'Evasive action'

A First Aberdeen spokesperson said: "Our thoughts are with all of those affected by this morning's incident.

"A car was in collision with one of our vehicles at the junction of Union Street and Summer Street.

"As the bus driver took evasive action, his bus then collided with street furniture and scaffolding at the side of the road.

"First Aberdeen is assisting police with their investigation into the incident."
