Three women seriously injured in Friars Hill Road car crash are sisters from Old Road, reports say
The three young women involved in an early-morning accident on the Friars Hill Road are reported to be sisters who are now in serious medical condition.
Sources say the three had left a night spot shortly before and were on their way home to Old Road when they were involved in the car crash.
According to an updated report, one of the sisters sustained a broken shoulder and a punctured neck and is being attended by a specialist doctor.
The report also claims that another sister sustained a very serious head injury, and, reportedly, the young women are in need of blood donations.
Reports indicate that the single-car crash, involving a white Honda FIT, occurred at approximately 1 a.m. Wednesday, on the approach to Cross Street.
Further reports indicate that the three women were traveling from north to south when the driver lost control and crashed head-on into a nearby fence, shattering that structure and badly damaging the front portion of the car. Parts of the vehicle were strewn about the scene and the engine was dismounted from its base.
As a result of the impact, the three young women reportedly were thrown from the vehicle.
Unconfirmed reports say this is not the first time they have been involved in an accident.
Meanwhile, the Police continue to warn motorists about speeding and imploring them to pay attention to the road regulations.
Only last week, Traffic Department Head Rodney Ellis said that – in addition to the suspension of licenses – more serious penalties are being considered as deterrents to speeding.
