The Youth and Culture Minister Lisa Hanna is at home recuperating following a car crash along Highway 2000 near the Spanish Town exit last night.

The Minister told The Gleaner/Power 106 News a short while ago that although she sustained no fractures or broken bones, she was in tremendous chest pain from the airbag and seat belt impact.

Hanna said she also received minor seatbelt burns.

"The impact was severe," Hanna said.

Last night, the minister underwent a series of x-rays and CT scan.

Hanna was a passenger in a white motor car which slammed into the back of a Honda Accord motor car.

Eyewitnesses say the Honda Accord had reduced its speed on approaching the scene of an accident on the highway.

That's when the vehicle in which Hanna was travelling slammed into its rear resulting in extensive damage to both vehicles.

The five occupants of the Honda Accord also sustained injuries particularly whiplash and are being treated at hospital.
