19-y-o Driver in Custody for Crash that Killed One & Injured 17

A 19-year-old man is in police custody in relation to Wednesday night’s fatal motorcar crash on Highway 2000 East West near the exit to Portmore.

The detainee was the driver of a car that ploughed into almost 20 passengers from a disabled bus along the roadway at about 8:30.


The passengers had reportedly exited the bus after it had a flat tyre.

A still unidentified female passenger was killed in the incident, and 17 other persons were injured.

It is understood that three of the injured persons are in serious conditions in hospital, one had a leg severed, while the others are still being treated at hospital, but their conditions are not considered life-threatening.

The police believe the car driver was speeding, and lost control of the vehicle in the process.
