A bus driver was killed and several passengers injured in a crash earlier today along the Gray’s Inn main road in St Mary.

Dead is 60-year-old Crowley Murray of Long Road in the parish.

The Annotto Bay police report that about 11:01 this morning, Murray was driving a Toyota coaster bus towards Port Maria and on reaching a section of the roadway, he allegedly tried to negotiate a corner and subsequently lost control of the vehicle.

The bus collided into a motor truck travelling in the opposite direction.

The occupants of the bus were taken to hospital where Crowley was pronounced dead, while the others were treated and released.
