    Article - En anglais

    On 27 September 1993 a double-decker bus full of secondary school children was involved in a collision with a lorry.

    A total of 58 people were injured, including two fatalities.

    All except two of the casualities were children.

    Forty-two casualities, including all of the seriously injured, were taken to the Accident & Emergency Department at York District Hospital.

    Fifteen casualities were admitted, the majority with closed head injuries.

    Most of the injuries were of a minor nature, predominantly soft-tissue damage and superficial lacerations.

    This paper reviews these injuries and the implementation of the hospital major accident (MAJAX) plan.
