A truck that was travelling behind the vehicle attempted to overtake and that was when the crash took place," a sergeant from the Portmore Police Traffic Department told the Jamaica Observer.

"The policemen were all rushed to hospital," he added.

The conditions of the policemen remained unknown up to late yesterday.

The driver of the truck was being questioned up to press time.
