Could the Thais learn a thing or two about the dealings of coach crashes? Probably not!

At least this coach is still in tact. I'm sure Thai/Chinese coach would have been in much worse condition, head-on or not.


A teacher has been killed and more than 20 people hurt after a coach crashed while bringing a Worcestershire school party home from a skiing trip in Italy.

Pupils from Alvechurch School were among 49 people on the coach, which crashed near Chalons-en-Champagne, in northern France, early on Sunday.

Relatives of Peter Rippington, 59, who died, said they were "devastated".

Four people are still in hospital with serious injuries, including a girl who was flown to Paris for treatment.

The girl, thought to be in her early teens, was taken by helicopter to a specialist children's hospital in the French capital.
