"At a sharp corner one mile from Moneague, St. Ann this truck, leaving Mount Diablo for Ocho Rios, overturned with five people aboard. Wilton Thompson, 15 was killed. His father Lebert, and the driver, 30-year-old George Campbell received minor injuries. They were thrown out when the air brakes failed and the truck mounted the bank.
