A collision between a car and a motorcycle this afternoon has left a man nursing serious injuries.
Kerwyn Husbands, 37, of Parish Land, Christ Church, suffered a broken right foot, along with several other injuries, after he was thrown from his motorcycle which crashed into a car driven by Dave Reid, 43, of West Terrace, St James on the Adams Section of the ABC Highway, along Briar Hall around 1:35 p.m.
He landed several feet away from the bike.
Employees of C.O. Williams assisted in preventing what could have been a more serious situation, by dousing the motorcycle and a nearby grassy area with sand after both caught afire.
Husband’s relatives, including his wife and his mother, gathered at the scene within minutes of the accident, which led to a long backup of traffic on the highway.
He was transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance, while the driver of the car, who was not identified up to press time, escaped unhurt.
