Two people remain in hospital in the UK after car crashed into tent where baby was asleep




Two people are in a major hospital in the UK after a car “flipped and rolled” off the road to a campsite, hitting a sleeping child’s tent, reports Breaking News.

Nine people were injured after a blue Ford Fiesta rammed into people and a tent at Newgale campsite on the Pembrokeshire coast in west Wales shortly after 10.30pm on Saturday.

Two of the injured are in critical condition in hospital, including the passengers of the car, police said.

Clare Harris, who runs the campsite with her husband Mike, told the PA news agency: “The car was speeding down the hill, realised it needed to slow down and tried to brake. It flipped and rolled several times, and crashed into the tent. There was a young child, a baby, in the tent at the time, thankfully they are okay,” reports Breaking News.

“It’s a tragic accident that the police are dealing with, that’s all we can say at the moment,” he added, reports Breaking News.

Dyfed Powys Police said on Sunday: “The road was closed to allow investigations and reopened at around 7.45am today. Officers are appealing for any information regarding the vehicle, a blue Ford Fiesta, and its occupants. We are especially interested in any dashcam footage or doorbell footage which may have captured the vehicle being driven from Roch to the scene of the collision at Newgale,” reports Breaking News.
