One of Jamaica's most prestigious singers, Grub Cooper, who is also leader of the Fab 5 band, had a narrow escape yesterday, following a two-vehicle collision along the Boundbrook roadway in Port Antonio, Portland.

The incident took place shortly after 10:30 a.m. during the staging of the Boston Jerk and Musical festival.

According to police, Cooper was reportedly travelling in a Toyota Rav 4, which was being driven by a female and was heading towards Port Antonio, when the vehicle collided with a Suzuki Vitara travelling in the opposite direction.

Police have theorised that the driver of the Toyota Rav 4 was not familiar with route (roadway), and instead of taking the turn into Port Antonio, ran straight across the road at the intersection at Boundbrook and slammed straight into the Vitara.

serious injuries

Dozens of persons reportedly rushed to the aid of passengers inside both vehicles, as fears mounted as to whether or not there were any serious injuries or fatalities. The bonnet of the Vitara was displaced, and both vehicles were totalled.

And although there were no serious injuries to anyone, Cooper, who was unscathed, was taken to the Port Antonio hospital for observation but was later released.

The Fab 5 band is booked to perform at the Boston Jerk and Music Festival being held at Boston, the home of authentic jerk pork.
