MANCHESTER, Jamaica — Attributing a two-vehicle collision in Goshen this morning to speeding and careless overtaking, traffic cop in the St Elizabeth Police Division, Corporal Albert Simpson, is calling on motorists to slow down.

He said the Gutters to Lacovia stretch of roadway has been “totally resurfaced” and motorists should exercise particular caution in that area.

Simpson told OBSERVER ONLINE that about 10:50 am a bus and a car collided, wounding four persons, including the driver of the car who had broken bones.

They were transported to hospital following the crash.

Overall, he said, the injuries are not life-threatening.
