Absolutely. There’s no reason for not starting a coach/taxi at Crewe/Preston. CS even know how many passengers they have in advance! Assuming the driver started at Euston (which clearly he won’t have done) he has 9 hours driving. But 4:30 till a break. The problem is it depends how much driving was done pre-Euston. If he was over an hour away from Euston this starts easing into driving hours & an extra 30 minutes can matter.
