Official cautions road users after Choc accident resulted in multiple injuries

A Fire Service official is calling on road users to use their “commonsense” in light of this morning’s vehicle accident in Choc that left more than a dozen people nursing injuries.

The highway at Choc has been the scene of a number of tragic accidents over the past months.

When asked by a reporter what appeal he would make to the public, Station Officer at the Fire Service Headquarters, Jermaine William, said:  “Well, it’s just commonsense. I mean don’t drink and drive. If you did not get enough sleep you need to get some rest, pull over and get some rest, and basically observe the rules of the road.

The accident occurred shortly after 9 a.m. in front the St. James’s Club Morgan Bay resort, when a 20-seater Sandals Grande coaster bus collided head-on with a Toyota Corolla Hatchback car (registration #PC3708).

The impact sent both vehicles off the road and into bushes.

Officials said about 15 persons were on the bus and the drivers of both vehicles were among the injured persons who were transported to hospital via several ambulances and private means.

Injuries ranged from multiple fractures to minor injuries, officials said.

  1. Surely it is time to amend the traffic laws to disallow a right turn onto the highway from the Morgan's Bay Resort Gap.

  3. Some drivers continue disregarding the traffic signs
    There are no right turn signs at st James and particularly at the corner of high street nd see road. The useless drivers don't adher to the signs. Lives matter.

  4. IT IS TIME TO INSTALL MEDIAN BARRIERS FROM THE CHOC ROUNDABOUT TO THE CHOC HILL OTHERWISE WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE MANY MORE HEAD-ON COLLISIONS ON THIS STRETCH OF ROAD!
    We cannot count on drivers to exercise good judgment on the Choc Hill so the State must enforce safety by erecting the median barrier even if it becomes an inconvenience.

  5. Them young a**holes keep doing s**t on our roads. Showing off what they don't have or have not for long. When will the retarded police force start using speed traps on our highways both during the weekdays and on weekend and holiday nights? They are just as much to blame as those careless idiots. I am fed up. Look at how many lives are being lost.
