PNP, JLP supporters in road mishaps
Despite what was a relatively peaceful and uneventful election, the nation's roads saw multiple motor vehicle accidents throughout the day, however, no casualties were recorded.
In Bull Bay, two Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) supporters had to be rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital after the car they were travelling in collided with a Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) bus.
The driver of the car and his lone passenger suffered what the police deemed to be minor injuries. Blood, however, could be seen on the side of the roadway, which onlookers said were that of the victims.
On the other side of the political divide, a van occupied by four People's National Party (PNP) supporters crashed in the vicinity of the old JAMINTEL Building on Duke Street in downtown Kingston.
Eyewitness reports are that the driver of the van intentionally swung in the direction of JLP supporters, when he lost control of the vehicle. Police say at least one occupant of the vehicle was admitted in hospital.
