He said: "It rear ended me while I was trying to turn right, then went into the trees."

Motorist Andrew Kirby who witnessed the aftermath of the incident at around 7.30am said the incident had caused "bad traffic" on Armthorpe Road and that the single decker bus had ended up a hedge.

He added that the incident happened across from Outwood Academy Danum, formerly the Danum School.

It is understood that no passengers were on the bus at the time of the incident.
