The driver of a car involved in a fatal crash with a bus yesterday morning has been named by police.

Delano Moore, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene after his Audi A4 carrying three other passengers collided with a N38 bus in Lea Bridge Road, just outside of the Lee Valley Ice Centre in Leyton at around 2:20am.

The father-of-three from Chingford had been travelling along the open stretch of the road when the accident took place with the double-decker bus carrying passengers on route to Whipps Cross.

Police have said the front passenger of the Audi A4 remains in a critical condition, and the two back-seat passengers are in a serious but stable condition at an east London hospital.

The driver of the night bus was released from hospital yesterday afternoon with minor injuries described as 'bumps and bruises'.

Ambulance crews also treated around 10 'walking wounded' bus commuters for minor injuries, with some of them being taken to hospital by another bus supplied by Transport for London.

Police have launched an appeal for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward immediately.

In particular, the driver of a car travelling with, or closely behind Mr Moore who police claim could be a vital witness in the crash currently being investigated by the serious collision unit at Chadwell Heath.

No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.

Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact the Witness Appeal line on 020 8597 4874 or via 101.

This reportage is contemptible.

The stupid, birdbrained reporter uses, shallow, thoughtless, frivolous expressions: "bumps and bruises"; "walking wounded", and one incorrectly - "the two back-seat drivers."

This is serious article: A person has died. A family has lost a father.

Disgraceful. No doubt the reporter will be rewarded for this atrocious use of language in a serious news article.

In a way the reporting is dubious for another reason. Hagiographies of drivers who died while they may have been street racing are tasteless, this man could have killed innocent people through his recklessness. If you know the other driver I would urge you to make him come forward.

The reporter has just reported the facts, what is atrocious about that? It looks like the information was released by the police. I didn't find the report frivolous, shallow or even judgemental.
Of course sympathy must go out to the deceased, injured and family but I don't think this is the job of the reporter.

calling it an accident is a bit silly I suppose. If you drive above the speed limit on the wrong side of the road it's no accident if you crash.

I agree that the article does appear to be reporting facts. Unless they've changed the original article it was YOU, "Thunderbird4," who introdued the phrase, "two back-seat drivers;" the article I read talked about, "two back-seat passengers."

I think your assumptions are incorrect and offensive. "Walking wounded" is attributed as a police comment in the BBC report on the incident and "cuts and bruises" to Arriva. These are quotes, in quotation marks. I can't see anything that justifies your defamation of the reporter..

It said, "back seat drivers"; it's been changed to correct their error of not reading back to themselves what they had just written.

You might have noticed that sometimes you click on an article and find it has been removed; I suspect for similar reasons.

Ridiculous, without proper traffic calming measures to deter drivers racing along in speed contests to the detriment of motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and horseback riders from the nearby riding centre of excellence.
