Double-Decker Bus Carrying 71 People Overturns in England

A double-decker bus carrying 70 passengers and its driver overturned on a road in Somerset, England, early on Tuesday, January 17, amid icy conditions.

Video by local resident Darren Russell shows people banging and shouting from inside the bus.

Avon and Somerset Police said the incident, which also involved a motorcyclist, took place at around 6 am Tuesday morning on Quantock Road in Bridgwater.

“A total of 54 patients were triaged at the scene. It is too soon to confirm if any of these patients have life-threatening injuries, however 26 people are being treated as walking wounded,” Avon and Somerset Police Superintendent Paul Wiggington said in a statement shortly before 1:30 pm.
