An investigation continues into the circumstances surrounding the incident in which a 52 seater coach,  travelling on the northbound carriageway of the A3, collided with a tree after leaving the carriageway between the Hindhead Tunnel and the Thursley exit, at around 11.50pm on Monday (10 Sep).

Surrey Police can confirm that officers have now been in contact with the families of the three people who died as a result of the collision.

A number of casualties were taken to hospitals across the South-east including the Royal Surrey County Hospital. Eleven remain in hospital.

Officers were at scene all yesterday (11 Sep) and were working to establish the exact number of passengers travelling on the coach.

Surrey Police Assistant Chief Constable Jerry Kirkby said: “This has been a tragic day for the families of the deceased and a traumatic incident for all those involved. Surrey Police has been working tirelessly to keep people informed and it will be some time before the full facts have been established. My thoughts are with those who have suffered as a result of this incident and I would ask people to respect their privacy.”

The coach has now been removed and the road as reopened last night (11 Sep).
