This was bus crash week on Coronation Street. The Underworld girls and Sean all gather on the mini-bus in their best bib and tucker for the outing to the North West Trade Awards. Steve’s driving the bus and gets into a spot of road rage with boy racers on a quiet country lane, close to a cliff edge. The mini-bus is run off the road, crashes, rolls upside down on its roof and ends up hanging over a cliff edge with the Underworld lot stuck inside. Steve’s first out of the bus, he can’t handle what’s happened and takes himself off in shock for a weep. Michelle’s next out and comforts him, only too aware that Steve’s blaming himself for the accident. Slowly but surely everyone else clambers, or crawls, out of the wreckage in various states of shock and distress with cuts and bruises all over. All the while, the bus creaks and moans with the shifting weight inside of it, barely hanging on to that cliff edge as everyone gets out alive, Sinead only just.
But hang on, just a cotton pickin’ minute! Where’s Mrs Connor? She’s only stuck at the front of the bus, dangling over the cliff edge, and the bus is threatening to break free and tumble to destruction at any second. It’s Tracy who goes back to free Carla and becomes the heroine of the hour, much to Carla’s admiration and disdain: “I had me life saved by Tracy-flaming-Barlow!”
The clan are all taken to th’ospickle (where’s Nurse Platt when you need him?) where most are given the all-clear, some bandages and pills. However, Sinead’s kept in for a three hour op and in danger of being paralysed. Meanwhile, Steve admits to Michelle that he’s depressed, he has been for months and feels responsible for the crash. She whisks him off to the doc where he’s given some pills and he gives her a hug.
And that's just about that for this week. Remember, you can sign up to get these Corrie weekly updates by email at http://www.corrie.net/updates/weekly/subscribe.htm
