Cumbernauld bus crash – 22 children taken to hospital

Cumbernauld bus crash – 22 children taken to hospital

An incident happened outside Our Lady’s High School in Cumbernauld shortly before 9.00am this morning (Thursday) when 22 children were taken to hospital after a bus carrying more than 40 school pupils destined for the school overturned.

The single decker, which was coming from the Abronhill area of Cumbernauld, flipped onto its side at Dowanfield Road, next to Our Lady’s High School.

Police said a 16-year-old girl was taken by ambulance to Wishaw General Hospital for what is believed to be non-serious injuries and another 10 patients were taken to Monklands Hospital in Airdrie and 11 to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow for observation. Others involved in the incident were taken to the Assembly Hall within the school for attention.

cumbernauld-busDeputy First Minister and Education Secretary John Swinney praised the response of the emergency services. He said: “While it is welcome news that nobody has been seriously hurt in this incident, it must have been a terrifying experience for those involved.

“I am sure everyone connected to Our Lady’s High School and the wider community will be grateful for the quick and professional response by the emergency services and the excellent care now being offered to those with injuries.”

North Lanarkshire Councillor Frank McNally, convener of education at North Lanarkshire Council, said a full investigation would be carried out into the crash.  He said: “The emergency services were very quick on the scene.  The council will be working very closely with the emergency services to undertake any necessary investigation.  At North Lanarkshire we take the safety of out young people very, very seriously. Parents on a daily basis give us their most important possessions – their children – and it is important that we investigate this matter fully.”

Late this afternoon (Thursday), work got underway to recover the crashed bus outside Our Lady’s High School in Cumbernauld.
