Danny Cipriani hit by a bus, taken to hospital
English rugby footballer, Danny Cipriani, was rushed to hospital last night after being hit by a double-decker bus in the UK.
This dramatic picture shows the moment Cipriani was attended to by paramedics after being hit by a double-decker bus while on a pub in Leeds with his teammates.
Cipriani was treated for concussion at the scene before being rushed to hospital for more checks overnight. The impact smashed the front windscreen of the bus and left Cipriani concussed on the floor.
Cipriani did not remember much about the incident. His manager told ‘The Sun’: “Danny’s spending the night in hospital. X-rays and scans will be carried out overnight. He’s obviously in pain. He was running across the road and just misjudged the speed of the bus.”
A bystander told police: “It was like a film, the bus passengers were all shook up and screaming.”
A spokesperson for the bus company said: “A pedestrian suddenly ran into the road and collided with a First Bus travelling at a safe speed.
“The police have investigated this incident and have reported that the driver is not at fault.”
UPDATED: This morning, the manager is happy to report that the footballer has been discharged from the hospital, “there doesn’t seem to have been any serious damage done. It looks like he has been a lucky boy.” he said.
