Two traffic accidents send several men to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre nursing various injuries
Several people are nursing injuries following traffic accidents that occurred over the past few days.
The most recent incident involves two men who were injured after a passenger bus and a motorcar collided on the Old Parham Road on Friday morning, February 3.
As a result of the impact, both drivers are now nursing injuries at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre.
Reports say that a white Toyota coaster bus was travelling south on Wireless Road, while a black Toyota Mark X was heading westward on Old Parham Road when the accident occurred.
Further reports say the light was red for one of the drivers, who, instead of stopping, proceeded through the light, causing the collision. The bus reportedly crashed into the pole of the traffic light.
Luckily, according to eyewitnesses, there were no passengers onboard the bus, and the female passenger in the car did not receive any major injuries.
Reportedly both vehicles sustained damage to their front section.
This incident occurred at about 5 a.m. at the junction near the JSC Sports Complex in St. Johnston’s Village
Meanwhile, a Lightfoot Estate man was rushed to the hospital late Wednesday, February 1, after reportedly being knocked from his motorcycle.
Reports say the man was struck by a minivan and thrown from his bike while he was travelling on the Factory Road, at the T-junction near Alanna’s Pizza.
Further reports claim that a 50-year-old Potters man was driving the vehicle, a Honda Stepwagn, which struck the motorcyclist. That vehicle was reportedly heading west on Factory Road shortly before 11 p.m.
