Bus overturns in St Philip

The driver of a Transport Board bus was slightly injured when the vehicle overturned on Summerville Road, near Her Majesty’s Prison at Dodds, in St Philip, around 6:20 am.

Steve Haynes, 42, was driving the bus – which was chartered for school children – from Church Village in the same parish when it broke the barriers of the bridge and overturned into a ravine.

There were no passengers on board.

Haynes complained of slight injury to his leg.

Workers from Crane & Equipment removed the bus from the ravine around 9:45 am.

    Why did it overturn in the first place?? Was he driving too fast, did he avoid an animal. This is happening too often.. At least no one was hurt..,

    I saw this bus while I was having my morning walk,the driver even spoke to me. I wasn,t too far from that area…he was relaxed and driving at a moderate speed. I,m glad he didn’t sustained any serious injuries.

      Could be because many of us have travelled on TB buses where the drivers seem to be rushing to put out a fire or to deliver a baby lol

    Unfortunately I drove that route for 4 years and the buses do speed not all but many on the narrow roads…..I have called to complain on some occasions. They are not the only ones speeding…

    Roads terrible and bus drivers complaining that the busses have alot of technical issues. Yet every day they are packed to capacity, so we must be thankful this one was empty. Its not always a case of speed or driver error, im sure many people hear the brakes screaming and while on board these vehicles they feel like they will fall apart glad the driver wasnt hurt.

    He should be suspended from driving until a proper investigation.is undertaken,the lucky thing the kids wasn’t on board.
