Five people were killed and two injured in a crash in Hopewell, Hanover last night.

Three of the deceased have since been identified - Nicholas French, Joseph Brown, and Phillip Jones, all of Green Pond, St. James.

The two other unidentified victims are a woman and a man.

It's reported that about 10 o' clock all five were travelling in a car along the main road towards Montego Bay when the driver reportedly drifted into the path of a vehicle travelling in the opposite direction, hitting it.

A couple in that car and the five in the other vehicle all sustained multiple injuries as a result of the collision.

They were taken to hospital where five people were pronounced dead and two others admitted.
