Another horrible accident


"

Once again our thoughts are with the driver and his family


At 0522 GMT, a coach crashed into a tree after skidding on ice on the A40 at Puesdown, south east of Cheltenham. It was carrying 29 Royal Marines from 42 Commando in Plymouth to RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, from where they were due to fly to Afghanistan. The 39-year-old civilian driver, who was cut free after nearly two hours, is thought to have serious head injuries.

BBC News


The coach and driver come from Plymouth based Target Travel. If you watch the video on the BBC page (link above) you can clearly see how the driver took the brunt of the impact. He is lucky to be alive.



Once again our thoughts are with the driver and his family at this awful time. Lets hope he makes a full recovery.
