Posted October 04, 2018 06:09:28 An Adelaide woman says she was the only person on the bus who survived a collision with a dump truck and died from her injuries.
Key points:The bus carrying a woman from Adelaide to Brisbane was travelling from Adelaide’s city centre to the city’s east.
The woman died from a broken leg, a head injury and two broken ribs after being hit by the dump truck.
The bus, which was heading south, collided with a truck near the intersection of the Crowsnest and Northcote Highway at 9:05am on Tuesday.
The driver of the dump trucks was also taken to hospital.
A video posted online shows the truck driver getting out of the vehicle and helping the woman who had been thrown from the vehicle.
“I was just trying to keep my composure and try to hold it together, and as soon as I saw her I just just started crying,” the woman, who was in her 20s, said.
“There was tears running down my face, tears of happiness.”
The woman was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital and died on Wednesday.
She is the third person to die on a bus in the Adelaide CBD in 2017.
Two women died on the same day in Adelaide’s CBD.
A 20-year-old woman was travelling in a black Mercedes SUV when she hit a truck, and died shortly after.
A 23-yearold woman died when she was hit by a dump tractor near the City and West Highway, while another woman was killed in a collision at the intersection with the South West Freeway.
