Coach crash causes several people to need hospital treatment

Coach crash causes several people to need hospital treatment

Both adults and children were forced to undergo medical treatment at hospital following a road traffic accident involving two coaches and a car in North Yorkshire over the weekend.

Around 100 people were on their way from Newcastle to the Malton-based Flamingo Land theme park in Yorkshire when their modes of transport were involved in a collision with a car.

It is believed that the coach in front crashed into the back of the smaller vehicle, before the second bus then rammed into the rear of its counterpart.

Many of the people injured in the incident suffered neck and back complaints, the Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) stated, while two adults and two children had to be taken to nearby infirmaries in Scarborough and Northallerton for professional attention.

A doctor present at the scene tended to several other people who sustained more minor problems, while a spokesperson for YAS stated there were a "number of walking wounded" present.
