Title

A minibus after an accident

Description

"Close Shave: Driving can be fun, it can be profitable or just downright dangerous depending on the situation and the speed. Our cameraman caught this minibus travelling down a hill near Chapelton in Clarendon last Monday with the two left-hand rear wheels extended as shown resulting from a broken axle, and those who saw the moving vehicle were struck dumb with and expectation of the worst. There were only two passengers in the bus and fortunately the driver was able to stop in time. Motorists who speed unnecessarily on our roads could possibly ponder the difference that unnecessary speeding makes - between life and death."
