The driver of the ill-fated minibus in which 23 students and three other persons were injured in Clarendon on Friday has still not been found.

Reports are that Clovis Duncan, who was transporting students of the Garvey Maceo High School, fled the scene following the crash. He has not been seen since.

A 15-year-old Garvey Maceo student remains in the intensive care unit at the University Hospital of the West Indies in very serious condition, while a taxi driver and four other students are also in hospital in stable condition.

The crash took place along the Crooks Gate main road in Clarendon about 9 a.m. Friday, when the Toyota Hiace driven by Duncan crashed into a taxi with seven passengers aboard, including four students of the Foga Road High School. The bus reportedly flipped more than once upon impact.

The Clarendon police are asking Duncan to report to the Four Paths or May Pen police station for questioning.
