Coronation Street spoilers: watch the new minibus crash trailer

The ITV soap unveils its biggest stunt since the Weatherfield tram disaster of 2010

ITV has released a new trailer spotlighting the upcoming minibus crash that will leave lives literally hanging in the balance.


Scenes to be shown next week will the staff of Underworld embark on a night out at an awards ceremony where Carla is due to pick up a prize. But the night ends in disaster when the bus – driven by Steve McDonald – is cut up and run off the road by a gang of boy racers.

As the dust settles at the crash scene it becomes clear that many of the passengers are injured and at least one of them is trapped in the minibus, which is dangerously close to the edge of a sheer drop! Will everyone manage to get out safely before the stricken vehicle plunges over the cliff?

Coronation Street producer Stuart Blackburn said: ”Everyone involved in filming these dramatic episodes is very proud of the end results. The stunt is breathtaking and is real edge of the seat stuff.

“But, in the spirit of great storytelling, the crash itself is just the start of the drama and will have far reaching effects for all the people involved in the coming months.”
