Coach overturns on M5 in Gloucestershire amid serious injury claims

The M5 motorway in Gloucestershire has seen a serious accident which could result in serious injury claims after a coach toppled over and rolled into a road side ditch.

According to Police reports, most of the 50 passengers aboard were uninjured but the driver is thought to have been hurt.

The road traffic incident happened on the southbound M5 motorway near to junction 13, Stroud and Dursley.  A section of the M5 between junction 13 and 14 has been temporarily closed whilst rescue crews carry out their work.

A Gloucestershire Police spokesman said:

“We were notified shortly before 10am that a coach had left the southbound M5 motorway close to junction 13, had overturned and landed in a ditch.  Transport is being provided to take passengers away from the scene.”

What Do The Specialists Say about serious injury claims?

David Healey from Carter & Carter Solicitors in Stockport commented on these possible serious injury claims earlier:

“The biggest issue with coach and bus incidents is that there are not necessarily seat belts or if there are, passengers do not always wear them.  If a bus or coach rolls as in this case and a passenger is not strapped in, they have a fair way to fall upside down before banging their head on the roof as it rolls.  An impact to the head with those kind of forces could easily result in serious injury.”
