TERRIFIED passengers were forced to flee for their lives after a bus exploded into flames during a horror crash.
Firefighters rescued more than 20 people when the Metrobus caught fire after crashing with an “undertaking car” in West Sussex.
They rushed to the scene on the A24 Southbound slip road in Ashington at 4.20pm.
Shocking photos show the extent of the blaze – which burnt the bus to a crisp.
After firefighters managed to extinguish the thick inferno all that was left was the vehicle’s shell.
It is not known how many passengers were injured.
The road remains closed, according to Inrix traffic monitoring service.
