Seven people, all believed to be related, remain in hospital in serious condition this evening, following a major crash in Swansea, Clarendon this morning.




The crash claimed the life of a teacher of the Garvey Maceo High School in the parish. Thirty-year-old Anika Smith of Havana Heights, who had to be cut from the wreckage, was killed on the spot.



The Gleaner-Power 106 News understands that one victim has been transferred to the The University Hospital of the West Indies for further treatment.



The crash occurred minutes to 5 o'clock this morning as the driver of a minibus in which they were travelling lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road into a ditch.



An eyewitness said the driver appeared to have lost control of the bus some 90 metres before it ended up in the ditch.



The victims were said to be travelling from a dance in Manchester.
