Police Investigate Prestwich Minibus Crash

Two Suffer Serious Head Injuries

03.05.2011

An investigation has started into a serious road traffic collision in Prestwich which left 14 people injured.

Greater Manchester Police are considering events leading up to the crash on Monday morning (May 1st), which saw a minibus carrying nine people collide with a Ford Focus in which five people were travelling.

Two of those hurt in the collision are thought to have suffered serious head injuries.

Irwin Mitchell represents a number of clients who have been badly hurt in road traffic collisions, as well as the families of those fatally injured in such incidents.

The firm was recently approached by a number of parents of schoolchildren who were hurt in a Chesterfield bus crash in March.

Gary Walker, a group injury claims specialist at the law firm, said: “While only a handful of details have so far emerged about this incident in Manchester, it is clear that answers are needed as to what happened.

“We have seen first-hand how traumatic crashes of this kind can be and hope the authorities work quickly and thoroughly to find out more.

“It is also vital that any serious failings that may be highlighted can be used to prevent similar incidents in the future and assure people that this will not happen again.”
