Three students of Fair Prospect High School narrowly escaped serious injuries following a two-vehicle collision along the San San main road in Portland, this morning.

The accident involved a Toyota station wagon and a Nissan motor car.

The police say the station wagon was travelling from Port Antonio, when the driver reportedly overtook another vehicle and collided with the Nissan motor car which was headed in the opposite direction.

The impact spun the Nissan out of control, which ended up approximately 100 metres from where the crash took place.

The drivers of both vehicles received cuts and bruises, while three second form male students received minor injuries.

It is the second motor vehicle accident involving students in three days, as on Monday, a minibus carrying 21 students and an elderly woman overturned along the Ken Jones highway in Saint Thomas.

A 15-year-old student from Happy Grove high was taken to hospital and treated for serious injuries.
