Accident today

A man has died and 10 people have been injured in a head-on collision between a van and a double decker bus in Devon.

A total of 16 people - some with severe head and spinal injuries - had to be pulled from the wreckage of First Devon and Cornwall's 93 service.

Full story here

As always thoughts are with the family of the man who has died and driver and passengers who were injured in what sounds a very nasty accident.


  1. One of my friends was on that bus at the time. Thankfully he came away with nothing more than shock from the incident, though there were some passengers that came off a fair bit worse.

    The Driver was also very professional throughout the ordeal, considering he could have been easily killed (from what I can see it was almost a cab-to-cab collision). Instead he managed to pull himself out of the cab and made sure all the passengers were alright. My friend had nothing but praise for him.

    Still, this is such a unfortunate incident. My thoughts go out to the Driver's families as well as the other passengers

  2. Thanks Doddy.

    It does sound a nasty accident that could have been a lot worse.
