For the second time in the same number of days, two public service vehicles (PSVs) have been involved in a collision. Thankfully, on this occasion, no serious injuries were reported although three persons were transported to hospital.
This morning’s accident occurred at Eastland, St George between a minibus and a Transport Board Bus. The right side of the minibus bore much of the impact of the crash.
One Wednesday, 18 people, including a two-year-old boy, were left hurt following an accident at Maxwell Main Road in Christ Church, involving a ZR and a minibus. The injuries, though not life-threatening, have led to a renewed call from Roy Raphael, president of the umbrella Alliance Owners of Public Transport for a review of the age of PSV operators. The proposal is currently before Government for consideration as part of suggested amendments to the country’s road traffic laws.
