André Williams, STAR Writer

A motor vehicle accident, which claimed the lives of three people on Tuesday evening along Highway 2000 in Clarendon, has pushed the nation's road fatality to 57 since January, THE STAR understands.

The dead have been identified as 61-year-old Maxwell Salkey of Porus in Manchester, and Clive Livingston Smith a teacher from Craig Head also in Manchester.


The driver of the bus in which all three were travelling, John Lawrence, of a Manchester address was also killed in the incident.

Reports reaching THE STAR are that shortly after 7 p.m. on Tuesday, a Toyota Hiace bus was travelling towards Manchester when Lawrence swerved to avoid a collision with a pickup.

Our news team gathered that the bus hit the pickup and Lawrence reportedly lost control of the vehicle, which then slammed into a concrete median, overturned and skidded before coming to a complete stop.
