TWO children were airlifted to hospital following a collision between a double decker school bus and two cars in Clifford Chambers this morning (Tuesday).

The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and two road ambulances were called out to the pile up, which took place around 8am on Campden Road.

A woman and two boys in one of the cars were seriously injured.

While three children, out of 30, travelling on the bus headed to Chipping Campden School sustained minor injuries.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived, they found a double decker bus and two cars which had been involved in a serious collision.

“Three occupants from one car, two boys and a woman, were trapped and upon assessment by ambulance staff were found to have sustained serious injuries. The team of medics worked closely with fire colleagues to carefully extricate all three patients from the vehicle.

“Each patient received trauma care to stabilise their conditions on scene before the two boys were airlifted to Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The woman was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“The driver of the second car, a woman, was assessed on scene and found with minor injuries which didn’t require hospital treatment.

“The bus driver and 30 school children were off the bus and safe and well seeking shelter in a nearby building. Three children were described as walking wounded with minor injuries and were assessed by ambulance staff before being discharged on scene.”
