Four-Car Crash on the George Price Highway

Early this morning, there was a four car accident on the George Price Highway near the Tropical Park community, and fortunately, no one was gravely injured. When a News Five team arrived on the scene, commuters had stopped to render assistance to those involved and an off-duty officer was directing traffic. Apparently, a pickup truck carrying fruits had experienced mechanical problems and parked on the road. While much of the oncoming traffic recognized the hazard and slowed down, several did not. In total four vehicles, including a mini bus, an Isuzu D-Max pickup and two SUVs were damaged in the crash. Rainy weather and low visibility may have been a factor. Police and paramedics arrived on the scene to extricate the female driver from the pickup truck. News Five spoke with fruit vendor Tyler Smith about what transpired.

“The nut bruk off and the wheel come off; right now dah the wheel the hold up the back of the truck right now as we speak so we can’t move off.  But I put branch way around the curve so they could see it. Before the vehicle dehn crash, two vehicles mi deh right behind here soh before that one come with a ball of speed and haul out and crash into the black vehicle deh soh. The other two was behind us just like how the white one was there, the other one was back of us here and they were coming at full speed. The greenish  greyish ride run into the black ride over there.”
