Passengers hurt in bus accident at railway bridge

Fifteen people suffered passenger injury, including one man who had to be cut free by fire fighters, when they were in a bus accident as the vehicle crashed into a railway bridge near Manningtree station, Essex.

Two of the casualties were taken by ambulance to Colchester General Hospital with suspected neck injuries, a further eight with minor injuries, mainly as a result of cuts from flying glass, went to the hospital by minibus while another man went to Ipswich Hospital.

There were 41 people on the 51-seater coach, which was a rail replacement service, when it was involved in the accident.

Network Rail was alerted and trains were temporarily stopped from using the bridge while it was checked for damage.

National Express East Anglia said it would be carrying out an investigation into the bus accident to determine the cause and liability which may then mean some of the victims could be eligible for compensation.
