Nine Brits are injured in horrifying bus crash on way to Turkish airport
- Nine of the 11 Brits on the bus sustained injuries and were treated at the scene
Nine British tourists were injured when a minibus driver ploughed through a red light and into a busy crossroads in Turkey while ferrying them to the airport earlier this week.
Shocking CCTV footage captured the moment the minibus jumped the stop and smashed full-tilt into an oncoming vehicle on the D-400 road in the Manavgat district of Antalya.
The car was battered some 150ft away from the crossroads by the sheer force of the impact, while the bus careened into the road median and flipped over.
Nine out of the 11 Brits sustained injuries and were treated at the scene by paramedics.
Firefighters were forced to cut the driver free of the wreckage as his car doors were so heavily damaged he was unable to drag himself out of the vehicle.
One young child travelling in the minibus was one of just two people unhurt, miraculously escaping injury despite the brutality of the crash and the subsequent rolling of the vehicle.
He was seen calmly watching an iPad while his parents received treatment from paramedics on the grass by the roadside in the aftermath of the incident.
MailOnline has contacted the FCDO for comment.
