MAY PEN, Clarendon:
A Clarendon teacher was killed in an early morning mini bus crash along the Swansea Main Road in the parish while heading home from a dance in Manchester.
At least five other people, including the driver, were rushed to hospital with serious injuries.
The uncle of the dead woman has identified her as Anika Smith, a teacher at the Garvey Maceo High School in Clarendon.
Neroy Williams, a resident of Swansea, said he was at home when he heard a loud impact.
He said when he looked outside he saw smoke coming from a ditch and so he and other residents rushed to investigate.
It was a mini bus which had crashed.
Williams said they managed to help the injured people to hospital, but the teacher appeared to have died on impact.
According to one eyewitness, the driver appeared to have lost control of the bus some 90 metres before it ended up in the ditch.
The incident has caused a traffic pile-up in Swansea as people try to get a glimpse of the woman's body.
Units from the May Pen Fire Station were called to pull the mini bus from the ditch.
