The medical condition of the driver, who was last night said to be in critical condition following a three-vehicle smash-up at Taitt Hill, St George, has improved.
Police reported today that 25-year-old Shane Barker was now in stable condition at the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Barker was the driver of one of two motorcars that were involved in last night’s crash with a minibus.
The other car was driven by 32-year-old Marlon Taitt of Sherbourne, St John, while the minibus was driven by 40-year-old Nigel Burrowes of Cherry Grove, also in St John.
In all, 13 people were injured in the accident, including four passengers who were transported to the QEH by ambulance for medical attention and later discharged.
The minibus, which was carrying 24 passengers, was en route to Sargeant’s Street, St John when the accident occurred. Five doctors, one nurse, one orderly, four ambulances, two fire tenders and six fire officers responded to the mass casualty situation.
