Fire crews at school bus collision, Herefordshire

in News

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service were called at 8.23am this morning after the coach left the B4399 east of Holme Lacy and drove down an embankment.

Four fire engines attended: three from Hereford, including an ultra-heavy rescue engine that specialises in rescue from heavy vehicles and a rescue engine from the Ewyas Harold station.

Firefighters helped rescue one woman because of her suspected injuries and she was dealt with by paramedics.

Group Commander Guy Palmer said: "As is so often the case, we have been working closely with our colleagues from West Mercia Police and West Midlands Ambulance Service to deal with the situation.

"Firefighters also helped with first aid for the many children at the scene and we will stay at the site of the crash to assist with the recovery of the bus."
