Actually you're right - loading the page on my phone wouldn't allow enlarging a blurry image, but I can on desktop.
It looks as if bus driver has cut the corner well after the give way sign and as you say has been collected by the swinging tram: note tree branch and sign behind fence in attached Google street view to assist in locating incident.

More importantly Google Street view captures ex-Invercargill Birney #15 in the background.


(planning on a bit of tram watching with a refreshing ale at the OGB bar just off-screen to right - if trans-Tasman bubble is reinflated by November).
