The principal of Ken Stimpson Community School has praised the maturity of his sixth form students who comforted a pupil hurt after a crash between a Stagecoach bus and two cars in Werrington.
Richard Lord said the year 9 pupil was fine after the collision yesterday (Thursday, March 3) at the junction of David’s Lane, Hodson Avenue and Goodwin Walk.
She was said to have suffered injuries common to a road traffic collision and had to go to A&E, but she is due back at school on Monday.
Mr Lord, principal of the school in Staniland Way, Werrington, said: “Older students travelling on the same bus offered her comfort and support and were very mature in their response.
“The girl was travelling with a couple of brothers and they were a bit shaken up.”
Police were called at 2.37pm to the collision and four people were believed to have been injured.
Three were said to have minor injuries with one sustaining serious injuries which were not life threatening.
Stagecoach has said it will assist police with their inquiries as well as carrying out its own investigation.
