The accident which occurred yesterday along Foga Road in May Pen, Clarendon is now the subject of an investigation by the Transport Authority.

The Authority has asserted that the vehicle was being illegally operated.

"A team from the Authority’s operations division was dispatched to the crash scene to assess the situation and will be conducting further investigations into the matter," the Authority said in a release to the media.

The Authority has urged students and general road users to use legal public passenger vehicles only.

The Authority says it is "also appealing to parents of students from Garvey Maceo and all other schools involved in the Safe School Bus Programme to ensure that they utilise the approved school buses, as it is safer to do so".

The Authority is now also calling on civic groups in Clarendon to help the Authority and the Police to galvanise support for the programme which was launched on February 2, 2015.

Meanwhile, the Authority has also implemented a public education campaign dubbed Choose Right, Choose Life to encourage the use of legal public passenger vehicles.
