Seventeen students from the Daryll Jordan Secondary School were involved in the accident involving a route taxi, which overturned at Benthams, St Lucy around 9:15 a.m.
Superintendent Margaret Stephens told reporters that nine of the 17 passengers were treated on the scene, including two who were later taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Another ten were being observed at the scene.
Stephen said the accident occurred after the ZR hit an embankment after swerving to avoid a head on collision with an oncoming vehicle.
