Three hurt in serious accidents
Three people were injured in two serious accidents – one involving a Transport Board bus – that occurred within half hour of each other in neighbouring parishes.
The first occurred at Fortesque Road, St. Philip around 6:45 am, involving a Transport Board bus driven by 45-year-old Richard Broomes and bicyclist Nigel Harewood, 39, of College Savannah, St. John.
Harewood complained of lacerations to his forehead and left shoulder and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) for treatment.
The second collision, which occurred about 7:15 am on Charnocks Main Road, Christ Church, involved two cars.
Edmund Bushell, 45, of Windward Gardens, St. Philip, and Tremella Maynard, 36, of Pegwell Gardens, Christ Church had to receive medical attention.
Bushell received lacerations to the right side of his head and was transported to the QEH by an ambulance, while Maynard who complained of pains about her body sought private medical treatment.
