An 11-month-old and a six-year-old infant escaped serious injuries after they were passengers aboard a Toyota motor car that collided with another vehicle yesterday evening.

The vehicular crash occurred about 6:50 p.m at the intersection of North Heroes Circle and Marescaux Roads and was the first recorded in the Kingston Central Police Division for 2013.When THE STAR visited the scene, scores of residents and curious onlookers from nearby communities had converged.

The drivers of both vehicles gave conflicting accounts of what caused the crash when our news team made enquiries.

The driver of the Nissan Sunny motor car explained that he was driving along Marescaux road in the left lane when the driver of a Toyota Corona travelling in the opposite direction made a sudden attempt to turn right into a lane and collided with him.

"Mi a drive go on my way to my yard at Fletcher's Land when this man crash inna me," he said.He said he was travelling alone at the time of the accident.

On the other hand, the driver of the Toyota explained that he realised that the other driver was actually driving in his lane and made no attempt to return to his rightful lane as the cars got closer to each other.

"Not even headlight, the man have on," he explained.

A police team from the Kingston Central Police Station headed by Sergeant R.Johnson was on scene carrying out an investigation.

Johnson advised THE STAR that the information he had at the time of our enquiry was anecdotal but said an official report would be made at the Allman Town Police Station.

He also confirmed that the crash was the first recorded for his division since the start of the new year.
