Two people in serious condition and seven others injured after car crashes into campsite

Nine people have been injured after a car veered off the road and crashed into a campsite in Pembrokeshire.

Two of the victims are said to be in a serious condition in hospital after a blue Ford Fiesta collided with a number of people and a tent at Newgale campsite shortly after 10.30pm on Saturday.

One person was airlifted to the University Hospital of Wales, the Welsh Ambulance Service said.

The car is believed to have been travelling from the village of Roch towards St Davids when it crashed off the A487.

Dyfed Powys Police said passengers in the car were among those injured.

Police said in a statement: “The road was closed to allow investigations and reopened at around 7.45am today.

“Officers are appealing for any information regarding the vehicle, a blue Ford Fiesta, and its occupants.

“We are especially interested in any dashcam footage or doorbell footage which may have captured the vehicle being driven from Roch to the scene of the collision at Newgale.”

HM Coastguard in Broad Haven said: “The team were paged at 11.23pm last night to assist with multi-agency incident in Newgale.

“We organised a helicopter site and supported paramedics with casualty care.”
