Donegal hospital implements major plan after bus collides with car

The HSE is urging people to stay away from A&E at Letterkenny General Hospital as staff there are dealing with 49 elderly people after the bus in which they were travelling crashed into a car.

The collision took place at Castleogary (pro:Castle - óg-ry ) near Killybegs, at about half past four.

Gardaí say nobody was seriously injured, and that the bus passengers were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Letterkenny General Hospital has this evening implemented its Major Incident Plan, and as a result, the hospital is extemely busy tonight.

The HSE is urging people not to go to the Emergency Department unless it is absolutely necessary.

The NoW DOC service should, they say, be the first port of call.
