    Forty-five people hurt in bus crash

    By David Brown on October 22, 2014

    Forty-five people were hurt in a road accident in Hertfordshire this week.

    It happened at around 8.25am on Monday October 20 on the stretch of St Albans Road that links South Mimms, Hertfordshire, with Barnet, also Herts.

    A two-tier bus turned over and was involved in a collision with a Vauxhall Corsa.

    More than half of the 87 people in the crash received hospital treatment but none of them are believed to be critically hurt, according to the East of England Ambulance Service.

    Ambulances rushed eight of the injured to hospital. Injuries included suspected head, neck and trauma-related damage. The firm whose vehicle was involved in the collision also sent an additional 37 people to medics in one of their other buses.

    The 40-year-old female Corsa driver is among the casualties.

    Bus accident causes whiplash injuries

    The bus accident saw six ambulances dispatched to the injury scene. They were joined by an air ambulance, fire fighters, police and a response unit dealing with hazardous areas.

    Teenager Kevyn Llanos, who was sitting on the upper tier of the bus, says that passengers toppled on to each other when the bus overturned. The 19-year-old student, who suffered serious whiplash injuries , says some passengers kicked the windows out to flee the scene.

    The ambulance service’s Darren Meads says emergency services soon got to the accident, enabling them to begin treating and assessing the injured as quickly as possible.

    Police have arrested a man, aged 41, suspected of causing significant injury through dangerous motoring.
