Two people were injured, one hospitalised, when a utility pole belonging to the Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) fell in the Halse Hall community in Clarendon this morning.
Reports are that shortly after 9 a.m., a NSWMA garbage truck was doing collections in the community when it got entangled in JPS electrical wires and toppled three utility poles.
An elderly woman received minor injuries while a 30-year-old man had to be hospitalized with several broken bones.
The residents complained that the utility poles were in a state of disrepair and needed to be urgently replaced.
