A catastrophic coach crash in Pembrokeshire, Wales on Tuesday has left one man dead and multiple passengers seriously injured.
The collision occurred around 2:15 p.m. near Cleddau Bridge, involving a Titterington Holidays coach carrying 24 passengers and a car. The male car driver died at the scene while the coach driver sustained critical wounds.
All passengers were transported to Withybush Hospital with various injuries before being discharged. A fellow bus operator who picked up the shocked survivors described seeing broken bones and facial wounds from the devastating impact.
Though competitors, local coach companies are rallying to support Titterington Holidays and those affected any way they can in the aftermath. It’s a sobering reminder that some things transcend business rivalries.
The precise cause of the fatal coach-car collision is still under investigation. But the damage makes it clear lives were spared only by fortune on what began as a holiday excursion.
For those riding what suddenly became a bus of terror, the memories of shattered glass and crunching metal will stick with them long after the casts come off. Now home, they at least know the compassion of strangers remains unbroken.
