A major incident has been declared in Brighton after two double-decker buses collided on North Street in Brighton.

Seven ambulances, six response cars and an air ambulance attended the crash which happened at around 9:20am this morning (06 July 2015).

According to police reports, two men suffered life-threatening injuries and three others suffered serious injuries. Six to eight people are understood to be ‘walking wounded’ with minor injuries. One of the bus drivers is described as having ‘significant injuries’.

Samantha Hemsley, a senior serious injury solicitor based in Thompsons Solicitors’ London office, said: “Our thoughts are with all those involved in this incident.

“While the causes of the accident remain unclear, it has already been established that passengers and one of the bus drivers have suffered potentially life-threatening and serious injuries. These victims will now face a long and intensive rehabilitation process as they attempt to rebuild their lives.

“Following a road traffic accident of this severity, it is essential that a full investigation takes place to ensure that the cause of the accident is established and that a repetition is avoided at all costs.”
