Quelch v Phipps: QBD 10 Jan 1955

A bus driver failed to stop and provide information pursuant to section 22 of the Road Traffic Act 1930. A passenger had stepped off the back of the bus in Oxford High Street whilst the bus was moving and the passenger was injured. The driver was not aware at the time that the accident had occurred but was told by the conductor at the next stop. He had no direct knowledge of the accident but was nonetheless found to have direct knowledge. Lord Goddard said that in these circumstances: ‘The driver must at any rate from a common sense point of view know that the accident had occurred.’
