PORT OF SPAIN – Eleven persons are recovering from injuries sustained in an accident involving a 12-seater red-band maxi-taxi on the Priority Bus Route (PBR).
The maxi-taxi, driven by Leon Williams, collided with a Toyota Rav 4 sport utility vehicle driven by Wendy Nesbitt, the widow of the late Earl Nesbit, a permanent secretary in the Ministry of Community Development yesterday.
The collision took place at the intersection of the PBR and Dinsley Main Road, Tacarigua.
Eye-witnesses reported that the maxi was travelling east when it made contact with the SUV, as Nesbitt attempted to exit the PBR by turning right onto the Dinsley Main Road.
Emergency Health Services ambulances took the ten passengers in the maxi-taxi and the driver of the SUV to the Arima Health Facility and the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mount Hope.
