UPDATE-Accident at Green Hill

Police say a 36-year-old postal worker remains in serious but stable condition after his motorcycle was involved in an accident with a route taxi at Green Hill, St Michael around 8:30 this morning.

The cyclist, Jomo Bascombe of Bank Hall, St Michael, reportedly suffered head, facial, and left thigh injuries, while his pillion rider  – 24-year-old Cojoe Bascombe  – complained of injuries to his back, hands, feet, and neck.

They were both transported to the state-run QEH by ambulance.

In the meantime, police say a total of 12 passengers aboard the route taxi, including the conductor, complained of minor injuries to the neck and back and opted to seek private medical attention.

A fence was also damaged during the accident.

Investigations are continuing.

    Anne Ince people have to be more careful when driving , everyone seems to be on a road rage, the increasing numbers of people using cell phones , not paying attention to hand signals.

      They wouldn’t be using cell phones if they were in the Uk , we now get fined the = of $600bds even if we are caught using a cell phone while sat at traffic lights or in a queue – along with 6 points on your license, 12 points and you lose your license !!

        Great point! This has gradually reduced these incidents in other countries. The government just need a new law as motorists are not liable for any offense.

    The authorities already know the facts. The real question is when are the lawmakers going to take action. Local police patrols can hardly make a dent in the problem without a major move to put a halt to the madness.u
