Fifteen Britons were involved in a terrifying coach crash in Kenya when their vehicle plunged 16ft down a bank and flipped on its side.

Fifteen Britons were involved in a terrifying coach crash in Kenya when their vehicle plunged 16ft down a bank and flipped on its side.

Some of the holidaymakers were taken to hospital following the 7am accident as they were being transferred to the airport for their flight home.

The coach veered off the road in the coastal town of Mombasa as it avoided a truck which had stopped in front. The coach finished up facing traffic coming the opposite way.

Mark Bizley, who was travelling in a car behind the coach, told the BBC the driver struggled to control the vehicle after the tanker began spilling water on the road.

He said: ‘The coach’s wheels lost grip and started to snake. it just rolled down the embankment onto the other carriageway.’

The injured were taken to two hospitals in Mombasa, although some were quickly discharged. Two were reportedly kept in the hospital and one was said to be in a serious condition.

Khalid Shapi, head of the local Pollmans travel company, said the passengers, which included some children, all suffered shock and injuries.

Most had only minor injuries and seven were able to fly home from Mombasa’s Moi international airport.

He added: ‘Three were taken to hospital for treatment, and the rest are family members who stayed behind to support them.’

Mr Shapi confirmed Britons were the only passengers on the 24-seater bus, which also carried the driver and a local representative of the company.

A spokesman for the British High Commission in Kenya’s capital Nairobi said: ‘Our consular staff are assisting injured people at hospitals.’

It is believed the holidaymakers, who included a family from Wales, had been staying at a hotel in the popular tourist area of Bamburi north of the Indian Ocean port city. Kenyan police have launched an investigation.

The probe comes in the wake of a major government drive to improve road safety amid concern over the high death toll among motorists and pedestrians.
