Both fire appliances from Bude were called to a traffic collision between a car and two pedestrians yesterday afternoon at the top of Belle Vue in Bude, near the Clip Joint on Morwenna Terrace. I believe one man was severely injured (possibly life changing). Locals made him as comfortable as possible with pillows, blankets, etc., as the whole terrace pulled together to assist.
I’m currently having to piece things together from social media, but it seems that some individuals were especially sterling while awaiting the prompt arrival of the emergency services. These included a passing nurse and Lewis from House of Chaplin.
The emergency services, including the air ambulance, were as usual magnificent, and council workers also deserve a mention, as they cleared debris after the incident to make things safe for others.
Our thoughts are firmly with the injured and we wish them well.
