  • Description

    SIXTEEN SWEDISH TOURISTS RAVELLING TO OXFORD, U.K. ON AUGUST 10, HAD AN ARROW ESCAPE WHEN THEIR COACH WAS IN HEAD-ON COLLISION WITH A TANKER CARRYING 2,000 GALLONS OF PETROL AT BATTLE BRIDGE, THREE MILES FROM BEDFORD.

    THE ONLY CASUALTY, THE DRIVER OF THE TANKER, WAS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL WITH SERIOUS INJURIES. FIREMEN WERE QUICKLY ON THE SCENE AS HUNDREDS OF GALLONS OF PETROL SPILLED ON THE ROAD. THEY COVERED THE PETROL WITH FOAM. A RELIEF TANKER ARRIVED AND THE REMAINDER OF THE PETROL TRANSFERRED.

    SAID ONE SWEDISH PASSENGER: "IT WAS LUCKY NO ONE WAS SMOKING AT THE TIME OF CRASH. THE AIR WAS HEAVY WITH VAPOURS."
