This is my dad and he is in critical
Condition in hospital. I hope the bus driver doesn't blame himself as we certainly don't. From what we know it was a pure accident. Hope the bus driver is ok.

It's usually kids playing chicken on Sheffield Road with the buses and cars at that time on an evening, so when I was driving past the accident, I was convinced it would be one of those kids. Must be awful for all concerned.

Kilkenny and TO/Carrie you are nothing but scum. Nick is a good friend of mine. And to say things like that over such a tragic thing is terrible.

Kilkenny - You are discusting. Why write horrible stuff? Lowest of the low scumbag who thrives of other people misfortunes..

My dad has asked me to comment to say sorry to the bus driver who was driving. He is now fully awake and out of intensive care, doctors can't believe the recovery he has made.

Some of the comments on here make me ashamed to say I'm from Barnsley! I'll bet the people that make these vile comments have no friends and aren't loved and have nothing better to do, why don't you stop trying to project your bitterness upon others and get a life?
Glad to hear Nikk is on the mend.

Why do you all play into these very strange peoples hands who only comment on here to upset people? They do it for attention and a reaction and by mentioning them and getting annoyed with them they are winning. Just totally ignore the comments they make.
