A prosecutor in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) is now hospitalised in an unconscious state following a car crash along the Negril main road in Westmoreland this afternoon. 

The circumstances of the crash are not known.

However, it is understood that it happened around 1 p.m. today and involved another vehicle.

Two passengers who were travelling in the other vehicle received minor injuries.

The prosecutor was rushed to the Noel Holmes hospital and has since been transferred to the Cornwall Regional Hospital.

He is awaiting a CT scan to determine if he can be airlifted to a medical facility in Kingston. 

The prosecutor was among several members of the DPP's office who attended a special sitting of the Court of Appeal in Hanover this morning.
