After three people were killed and others were left seriously injured when a coach thought to be returning from a music festival overturned after hitting a tree on an embankment, Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals responded to the incident.
In the early hours of this morning St Peter’s Hospital responded to a major incident following the coach crash near the Hindhead tunnel in Surrey.
The hospital received 23 casualties from the scene most of whom were walking wounded. The majority have now been discharged from the hospital.
Our thoughts are with the families of those who have lost their lives and those who are injured.
Our hospital and staff have coped extremely well and we don’t anticipate any major impact on other hospital services as a result of this incident.
