A BUS driver hit other vehicles then smashed into a garden wall amid claims her brakes were faulty.

The dramatic incident in Glasgow’s Cardonald brought the city’s busy Paisley Road West to a halt last December.

Norma Dorran, 62, ended up being charged following the crash. But, Glasgow Sheriff Court heard claims a problem had been reported with the number 9 First Bus two days before the collision.

Dorran, of the city’s Lambhill, yesterday pleaded guilty to careless driving. She will be sentenced later this month.

However, she avoided disqualification, and still works for First Bus.

A hearing was told she was driving towards a traffic queue when her coach did not stop and struck a van. Dorran then made a right turn “at speed” before going through the pedestrian crossing and hitting more vehicles. There were no injuries.

Dorran said there had been “crackling” on her brakes when she tried to come to a halt.

The bus was examined and the breaks were found to be “functioning fully”.

However, prosecutor Graham Macdonald acknowledged: “We have information that a complaint had been made by other bus drivers about the breaks prior (to the incident).”

Sheriff Andrew Cubie told Dorran: “The circumstances are very unusual. I will have a think about the appropriate way to deal with this.”
