Dear Mr Kearney

 

TfL Ref: FOI-1664-1213

 

Thank you for your email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 7
January 2013 asking for information about collisions in Westminster
involving a TfL bus. I am sorry for the delay in replying.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and TfL’s information access policy. I can confirm
that TfL does hold the information you require. You asked for:

 

The number of fatalities and injuries resulting from TfL bus-pedestrian
and TfL bus-cyclist collisions in Westminster Borough for the period
2007-2012. This information should be provided per year, severity of
injury (KSI or Slight), and whether the injured/killed party was a
pedestrian or a cyclist.

 

Please see the attached spreadsheet.

 

We note in some of your recent requests that you quote a slightly
different classification system used for road traffic incidents (S19
statistics) to that applied to the bus network.  The classifications are
very similar but we have provided general guidance so that you can make
comparisons more easily. KSIs (Killed and Seriously Injured) are a
combination of fatalities (where the person involved dies within 30 days
of an incident) and serious incidents where an injured person is held as
an in-patient over night in hospital. The other types of lesser injury are
defined as slight.

 

TfL classifies incidents on the bus network as fatal (where death is
attributed to the incident without a time limit of 30 days from a
collision), major where customers or third parties are taken to hospital
for treatment whether it is subsequently required or not, and minor
indicating all forms of lesser injury including shock where a person is
not taken to hospital and may or may not require first aid at the scene.
We encourage full reporting of incidents regardless of whether there are
any injuries to people or damage to other vehicles or property, and
whether or not third parties are at fault.

 

The TfL incidents management system collects and collates data on the bus
network for statistical analysis.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
