On a dark night in November 2004, this bus was working a Service X33 along the Bromsgrove Highway when it hit the back of a vehicle that had broken down in the nearside lane. The bus was overturned but luckily there were no serious injuries. The bus returned to service a few months later after being rebuilt at Worcester depot. The driver was asked not to return to service!
