Out of curiousity I checked the Times and found the following


The Times, Monday, Jul 20, 1964; pg. 6; Issue 56068; col G




"A girl aged 14 on a school trip abroad was orphaned yesterday in a car crash at Bradford. Four people died and three were seriously injured when the car was in collision with a double decker bus during a storm late last night (July 18)


Those killed were James Welsh aged 56 and his wife Elizabeth Mary aged 54 of Emerson Avenue Bradford and their son in law Charles Parrott aged 29 and granddaughter Linda Parrott aged nine of Howarth Road Bradford


Mt Parrott's wife Catherine aged 31 and two friends Bruce Sagar aged 26 and his wife Julia aged 26 of Cottingley Road Sandy Lane bradford were all detained in Bradford royal Infirmary with head injuries"


I realise that there are differences with the info you have but this is the only instance I can find in The Times at least of four deaths in 1964 that arose from a collision with a bus in Yorkshire.


Hope it helps
