The A66 Keswick coach accident occurred. A Honda Civic collided with a coach carrying children home from Keswick School on the A66 road in Cumbria, United Kingdom. Three people were killed and four were left seriously injured. Approximately thirty people sustained less severe injuries. The accident occurred very near Keswick in an accident hotspot. The outcome of the inquest was that the likelihood is that the Honda driver had fallen asleep at the wheel and the deaths were the “result of a tragic accident”.
