THE parents of tragic accident victim Robert Jamieson have vowed to continue their fight to have traffic lights installed at the notorious junction where he died earlier this year.
Robert, 20, of Kingsmead, Knuzden Brook, was killed when his Peugeot 106 was in collision with a school bus at the Britannia crossroads, Oswaldtwistle, in February.
Robert, a second-year architecture student at Salford University, also worked part-time at Accrington's Asda store.
The bus, driven by Fernando Page, 46, of Nelson, had been carrying pupils home from Rhyddings Business and Enterprise College when the crash occurred.
At an inquest last Thursday police accident investigator PC John Sutcliffe said: "The bus was attempting to make a right-turn into Lottice Lane.
"The car driver was travelling at around 53mph in a 40mph zone at the time. Had he been driving at 40mph he could have braked and avoided the collision.
"But the driver of the bus should have waited for him to pass before attempting the manoeuvre."
East Lancashire Coroner Michael Singleton recorded a verdict of accidental death.
He said: "I have a son of similar age and I cannot imagine the grief and torment the family is going through."
Speaking after the inquest, his father, also called Robert, said: "We have lost our son and we do not intend to let this rest. We don't want anyone else to die there."
Robert's mum Susan, who works at Accrington's Asda store, added: "It is too late for our son but not for others. We don't want anyone else to suffer every waking hour as we are doing.
"We would like to thank everyone who has supported us, especially all the staff and customers at Asda. Losing Robert has left a big hole in our lives."
The couple said they had been lobbying Lancashire County Council for traffic lights and had enlisted the support of Hyndburn's MP Greg Pope.
A county council spokesman said there were already plans to install new junction signs at the approach to the crossroads. These would have lights that would flash if a vehicle was going too fast or if a vehicle was waiting on a side road.
He added they were also looking into the possibility of a full-size roundabout at the junction.
Police said they had interviewed Mr Page and taken a statement from him. They have sent a file to the Crown Prosecution Service which will decide whether or not to prosecute.
