Over a dozen people, including a toddler, have been injured following an accident, which occurred along Maxwell Main Road in Christ Church around 7:30 a.m. involving a ZR and a minibus. The two-year-old boy reportedly hit his face to a metal bar during the collision.
However, none of the injuries suffered was said to be life threatening, even though four people had to be transported to hospital by ambulance. The others, who complained mostly of neck, back and shoulder injuries, were treated on site, where the Barbados Defence Force had set up a temporary treatment tent.
The minibus, owned by McCarty Rentals, was driven by 50-year-old Eustace Morris of Welchman Hall, St Thomas, while the ZR, owned by MAH Transport Service, was driven by William Gamble for whom no address or age were given.
Up to 10:30 a.m. emergency officials were still busy on the scene.
