Title

Accident on Half Way Tree Road

Description

"Piggy back: it was not impatience why this mini-bus hitched a ride from the Sunbeam on Half-Way Tree Road yesterday. Both vehicles were travelling towards Half Way Tree when the car, owned and driven by Hanson Currie at Bridgeport stopped. Minibus driver Cornelius Bingham of 14 Wigton Road, Kingston 13, applied his brakes too, but the entire front axle and wheels were torn off, resulting in the accident. The bus is owned by Loxley Walters of 32 Midland Drive, Patrick City. There were no injuries."
