Just saw nasty accident near the uni. well I saw the results, not the accident itself so I couldn't be of much use as a witness. I don't know if the guy was crossing the road, (it was on a corner with a ped. crossing) walking in the road, on the edge of the pavement, or what, but I just heard a loud crack, looked and saw a body spinning upwards and outwards from the side of a bus and thought for a moment he had fallen out of it... but the doors were closed. There had been a loud crack which was really horrible when you saw what had happened. It could have been the bus hitting him, his leg braking or his head smacking the floor or railings - I don't know which. The bus stopped. Anyway the upshot is that I think he'll be OK - he was sitting up straight away, head bleeding profusely and unable to move his leg, but able to talk. A large crowd gathered immediately and someone called 999 before I even got my phone out of my bag. I went in the nearest cafe to get tea towels, as someone else was talking to the injured man and trying to stem flow with small tissues, but two guys had already beaten me to it and were just being handed towels by bar staff as I arrived. All I could do was pass them to the guy kneeling in front of the injured man and tell him to press on the wound firmly with the towels. He seemed a bit phased by the fact that there wasn't much left of the forehead to press against but did it anyway. The ambulance arrived, so I left as there wasn't anything else I could do anyway but I do feel quite shaken by it. I wonder if he was a student. Very bad start to the term if so! Poor guy.
