LONDON, England - The driver of a R1.2-million Audi R8 sports car was killed when he ploughed into a bus.

According to the London Daily Mail, the R8 collided head-on with an single-decker bus in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, north-east England.

The driver was cut from the wreckage by emergency crews but was pronounced dead at the scene. The bus driver was injured and was taken to hospital but the bus was empty.

DEADLY CRASH

Guests at the nearby Gosforth Hotel said: “We’d had some customers in who had been at another pub and saw the crash. They said the driver was cut out but there was nothing the paramedics could do to save him."

Tony Batty, head of operations at the bus company, said: “We are aware of an incident between a car and an Arriva bus. The car driver was killed. Our concerns are for the bus driver and car driver’s family."
