8 passengers injured in coach accident on M3 Hampshire

8 passengers injured as a coach crashes on the M3.

Police say it is a miracle only 8 passengers were injured in this coach accident on the M3 near Fleet services last night.

Hampshire Police have said that the driver lost consciousness at the wheel at about 6 p.m. on the southbound carriageway.

Eight people have been taken to hospital, one seriously injured with a fractured bone.

The 26 passengers were on a Dutch-registered coach that was travelling to Southampton to begin a cruise.

Swain & Co.’s personal injury lawyers say that luckily there have been no fatalities in a serious coach accident on a busy motorway.


Many people travel daily on trains, buses and coaches.

Using these forms of transport can carry inherent risks; many passengers having to stand or not wearing a seatbelt. This can mean that if there is a collision or road traffic accident, you are at risk of being thrown around.

If you have been injured as a result of an accident on public transport, it is unlikely that it will be your fault, and you could make a passenger claim for compensation.
