Man knocked down by bus in Hull (video)
A MAN has been taken to Hull Royal Infirmary after being knocked down by a double-decker Stagecoach bus during morning rush-hour in Chanterlands Avenue.
Emergency services were called to the scene, at the Spring Bank West end of the avenue, at around 8.30am.
A witness, who did not want to give his name, described how the man - thought to be in his 50s - appeared to step straight out in front of the bus.
He said: "I saw it all. It was definitely not the bus driver's fault. I was on the bus and just about to get off when it happened. There was nothing the driver could have done about it.

"Two people, who were trained in first-aid, got off the bus and tended to him, while I rang for an ambulance."
Traffic quickly built up, causing tailbacks along Spring Back West, although police quickly set-up diversions.
The bus involved was the 13S Orchard Park service.
Speaking at the scene, PC Steve Lamswood told the Mail: "A pedestrian crossing the road has come in collision with a bus. His injuries are not considered serious. He has been taken to hospital.
"Anyone who witnessed the accident and has not already given us their details is asked to do so by calling us on 101."
