That'll probably be a write off due to its age depending on the damage. Might not be worth repairing an 11 year old Enviro 200

Will be more than 11 years old once the Police and Traffic Commissioner has finished with it

Bit of an odd thing to say ???  What are you implying & why would it involve the Traffic Commissioner ? Are you aware of the exact details of what happened at the accident ?? For advice, I'd be a bit careful with your statements, as you never know who reads these Comments Boards ??

But for the record....
The bus was moving under a Green Traffic Light & it was the 4x4 that failed to respond to a Red Trafic Light & then collided with the bus.

Apologies but thought it was standard protocol that if a bus is involved in a accident the Police and/or Traffic Commissioner have the vehicle for a period of time whoever was at fault be it the driver, bus company or the 3rd party

No. Thankfully not or there’d be an awful lot of buses not available for service. Normally a bus is only ‘impounded’ if there’s a fatality - both for examination by DVSA to check there were no faults that could have contributed - and on occasion pending any court case.

Thanks for clearing that up
