London: Two soldiers have suffered ‘life changing’ injuries after a convoy of three troop carriers crashed during an Army exercise on Salisbury Plain.
An officer and a sergeant had to be cut from the wreckage and suffered serious leg injuries after their truck rear-ended another vehicle, sending one careering off the road last night.
The incident happened at around 6.30pm in a training area at Westdown Camp, near Larkhill in Wiltshire, close to Stonehenge.
The crash occurred during a joint exercise with the British and Indian armed forces, it was reported last night, and many of the casualties are believed to be Indian.
In total up to 20 were injured and 11 were hospitalised, with five left with life-changing injuries – nine ‘walking wounded’ were treated at the scene.
