"We got on to the Parkway and our taxi driver went through a red light but there was a bus already half way out which was moving out the way for a ambulance.

"The bus went straight into us and flipped us over."

Chelsie said she was 'very lucky' to escape serious injuries in the crash but was left with cuts and bruises over her neck and back.

The driver of the taxi sustained minor injuries in the incident and was taken to hospital to receive treatment.
