RESIDENTS and workers surrounding Kilbowie Road were hailed “heroes” for rushing to help victims of a bus stop crash that left the street “like a war zone”.

Community representatives said it was a “miracle” no one was killed and locals were praised for taking care of the four injured pedestrians until emergency services arrived.

A Hiflow van smashed into the bus shelter on Kilbowie Road shortly before the corner of Drumry Road at 7.44am on April 28.
Councillor Denis Agnew said: “I went up to see it and it was dreadful how that happened and the fact nobody was killed – it’s a miracle.”

Picket lines were back up in front of West College Scotland and were set to continue.

Students caught in the middle feared it would derail plans to go to university in September or force them to do an extra year at the college with time running out to mark graded units and assessments.
