Does that photo still have the drivers involved in the crash in it? If so that's a bit much and could be very distressing for family and friends surely?! For the bus driver, I'm sure it's not an image he will want to see again! It's a sad time when a tragdy like this happens and people just snap away with their phones and images circulate willy nilly. It's cheap and disrespectful
