The St Thomas Police has issued a strong warning to motorists in the parish following a motor vehicle collision this morning.

Several persons suffered minor injuries along the Poor Man’s Corner main road, when a pick-up, which was en route to Kingston crashed into a minibus.

It is the third motor vehicle crash since Sunday.

Yesterday afternoon, four persons, including a one-year-old girl were taken to the Princess Margaret Hospital following a crash along the Yallahs main road.

The police say a Honda motor car was traveling east along the Yallahs main road when the driver reportedly fell asleep and lost control of the vehicle.

The vehicle then slammed into a Toyota coaster bus at a bus stop.

On Sunday, two drivers and four passengers narrowly escaped life threatening injuries, following a head-on collision involving two cars along the Bowden to Port Morant main road.

The drivers suffered broken legs and had to be removed from their vehicles by firemen.

The St Thomas Police is urging motorist to exercise extreme caution especially when there is water on the road which could be disguising large potholes.

They are also cautioning motorist to observe the speed limits in the parish.
