The driver of the 5-ton truck remained on the scene. According to the police, speed and alcohol are not contributing factor to the incident. The driver was evidently shaken and under treatment by the paramedics.

The bus loop at that location was shut down briefly while the coroner and crash investigators attended the scene. The bus loop is now back in operation and has been moved into the parking lot of Sevenoaks Shopping Centre.
