Indian-origin driver involved in Britain bus crash

London: A 77-year-old Indian-origin man was driving the bus that crashed into a supermarket in Britain’s Coventry city killing two people, a media report said on Monday.

Kailash Chander is understood to have lost control of the bus before crashing into the city centre store on Saturday evening, the Daily Mail reported.

“He is a polite, kind man who has done a lot for the community. He was a former town mayor,” the daily quoted a colleague as saying.

Police are yet to know the exact cause of the crash. No one has been arrested.

Some witnesses claimed the bus was at high speed while others said it had just pulled out of a bus stop when it crashed.
