Maybe I read this wrong but it says 10 people were taken to hospital on the 22/3/17 and that was still the case on the 23/3/17 when in fact 2 people were discharged. It also says 40 people were injured and 5 killed. So does that mean that 30 people were injured by a car travelling at 70mph and didn’t need hospital treatment?
