High Political drama unfolded early this morning in the vicinity of the old JAMINTEL Building on Duke Street in downtown Kingston, where Jamaica Labour Party supporters claim a motor vehicle full of Peoples National Party supporters “swung at them and crashed.”

The four men were driving a brown Honda Odyssey van registered with a public passenger licence plate.

One eyewitness, who refused to be named, said the motor vehicle passed up the road before and returned before swinging at a group of persons.

“One of them, the man in the back get a serious injury. Them look bad and just look like them come on the road to show them bad. Him did a drive and smoke weed and look like him can’t drive,” she stated.

“Officer, a want you put in your report that Portia bus crash,” one man clad in full green shouted to police which had gathered on the scene.

The men have since been taken to the Kingston Public Hospital, where Sergeant Miller of the Motorised Patrol Unit said: "One of the injured men was admitted to the operating theatre, one suffered injury to his mouth and the most serious injury to his neck.”

The driver wasn’t hurt and the injuries are not life threatening, but a female Inspector of Police for the Kingston Central Police division is imploring caution on the road.

“I implore drivers to just adhere to the rules of the road,” she stressed.
