January 23, 2020

The hunt is on for the occupants of a taxi who mowed down a policeman at the intersection of Worthington Avenue and Trafalgar Road in New Kingston this morning.

The incident happened about 7:45 a.m.

The police say the black Toyota Wish motor car licensed PJ 6379 sped away and the occupants resisted multiple attempts to be stopped.

"Help us to find these men," a police spokesperson asked in a post made on Twitter.

A man, claiming to be an eyewitness, said the cop signalled the motorist to stop at the intersection.

He allegedly disobeyed and hit the cop.

Other motorists rushed to his assistance.

The injured cop is now at the Kingston Public Hospital.
