Vehicle collision along Edward Seaga Highway leaves three injured
Three men were injured on Thursday morning when the Mitsubishi Fuso truck they were travelling in collided with a trailer along the Edward Seaga Highway in the vicinity of Mammee Bay, St Ann.
The accident occurred about 7:00 a.m. while the men were on their way to Montego Bay in St James from Kingston. Firefighters were quick on the scene after being summoned.
While tending to his injuries, one of the injured men told The STAR that their truck experienced technical issues as it came down a hilly slope.
"We were coming down the hill and was driving at a little speed at the time. The break couldn't stop at the time, so we hit in the trailer," the man said.
It is understood that a woman who was travelling along the roadway stopped to render assistance by putting a neck-brace on the driver of the Mitsubishi Fuso. The driver was subsequently placed on a gurney by the firefighters on the scene.
Another of the occupants had to have his legs tied together with his shoelace in order to be lifted into a police vehicle to be transported to hospital.
The driver of the trailer did not sustain any injuries.
