The A380 has been reopened after a bus carrying school children and a car collided at Telegraph Hill this morning.

Three fire crews, ambulance and police were called to the scene on the northbound carriageway at Kennford.

The crash occurred at 8am and left the woman driver in the Ford Ka unconscious and trapped in her vehicle.

The school bus was carrying children but there are no reports of any injuries and a replacement bus was called.

The female in the Ford Ka was freed by fire fighters at 8:30am and is now conscious, say police.

Traffic was diverted to the A38 and police warned motorists to take care as conditions are poor with lots of surface water and spray.

    Roads are so unsafe now. THe traffic chaos is increasing. eventually we will have to take to the skies as there wont be any more space for cars to drive or anywhere to park them. it should be a legal requirement for all vehicles to have automatic safety assistance which prevent loss of control. I think the vehicle manufactures should be more responsible and be made to have collision avoidance systems by law. we should not allow cars which carry fragile human beings without some kind of collision avoidance system. In my opinion these vehicles are not safe to carry people simply by not having a collision avoidance fail safe system. Tougher rules should be imposed on car manufactures as at the moment they are allowed to build vehicles with no anti crash features. we need to devise a system which is faultless.
