Pedestrian hit by bus in Ingoldmells

The road has now re-opened

A male pedestrian was airlifted to hospital after being hit by a double decker bus in Ingoldmells on Wednesday afternoon.

The incident took place just after 3.30pm on Wednesday, August 15 on Sea Lane near Fantasy Island and is believed to have involved a Volvo double decker bus and a pedestrian.

Two ambulances attended the scene. The road was closed in both directions.

The pedestrian was airlifted to hospital, but is not thought to be seriously injured.

Richard Watkinson, who was at the scene but didn’t witness the whole incident, said: “I was parked behind the pedestrians so didn’t see much, just the paramedics working behind the seaside bus on the casualty.”
