At least one soldier is believed to have lost a limb in a collision between troop lorries during an Anglo-Indian exercise on Salisbury Plain.

Up to 20 military personnel were injured in the smash just off a public road across the Plain, with the two most severely injured being flown by helicopter to nearby hospital and another eight classed as seriously hurt.

Police said four or five could have suffered "life-changing" injuries, and military sources said at least one Indian soldier has undergone an amputation.

Both British and Indian troops were badly hurt, but the majority of injured are Indians, the source said.

Exercise Ajeya Warrior was part of a larger war game called Wessex Storm and involved troops from British units including 6 Rifles and a company of Indian soldiers carrying out mock counter insurgency operations in difficult urban terrain. The crash took place at around 6.30pm on Wednesday, in a field near Westdown Camp.

A spokeswoman from South West Ambulance Service said: "From our perspective we have taken two patients with life threatening injuries, and flown them to Southampton.

"One went with Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, and the other with Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

"We have taken eight patients with serious injures by road ambulance to Salisbury Hospital.

"We have treated a number of walking wounded - I am saying a number because we don't have a definitive figure."

She said the rescue operation involved a number of land ambulances, volunteer on-call doctors and two ambulance hazardous area response teams - one from Bristol and another from South Central Ambulance Service.

A number of rapid response vehicles were also involved, as well as two critical care paramedics vehicles.

The gender and ages of the injured people, and the nature of their injuries are not yet known.

Although both British and Indian soldiers were injured in the accident during exercise Ajeya Warrior, the majority of the injured were Indians, The Telegraph reported citing a source.

The accident took place around 6.30 pm on Wednesday. According to police, four or five soldiers might have suffered "life-changing" injuries, the daily said, adding that at least one Indian soldier lost a limb.

"The road traffic collision happened on a by-way which cuts through the Salisbury Plain," an Indian Army official said. The injured included personnel from the Kumaon Regiment.

They were lucky as it happened in UK. The main source for info is their media and UK media came rushing to save their army's ass. And it was not broad daylight though.

But yeah something is fishy and UK media is definitely hiding something, no doubt.

I hope that our guys are not at fault. And the persons responsible for this accident must be punished regardless of which nation they belong to.
