School coach and van crash


A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The van driver, a man in his forties, had neck and shoulder pain. He was immobilised with the use of a spinal board and neck collar and was taken to Warwick Hospital.

“The coach driver, a man his thirties, had an ankle injury but after being assessed by ambulance crews, he was discharged at the scene.

“There were thirteen children in the coach. They were not injured and were transferred to another coach to continue their journey.”

    Why on earth is a coach travelling on a road of this nature. Surly that was an accident waiting to happen. When will these coach companies learn that taking short cuts on narrow country lanes is not acceptable.

      Has it occurred to you that the coach was not taking a short cut it was a legitimate council funded bus route ,….or maybe the council may put a bus stop on the main road so the children can walk down a dark country lane to get home
