KINGSTON, Jamaica — A third person has succumbed to injuries following the three-vehicle collision along Hope Road on Monday.

The police, at the time, reported that two people died from injuries received in the collision.

One victim was identified as 42-year-old Gastun Steer, a taxi operator of Papine, St Andrew, while the other was unidentified.

The police have since released the names of two other victims — Sandra Spence, of a Pear Tree Grove address and Maurine Mullings of Tavern Avenue.

The Papine Police report that about 7:45 pm, a Toyota Corolla motorcar was travelling toward Papine when it hit another motorcar. The driver subsequently lost control of the vehicle, which collided with a Toyota Hiace bus.

The injured were taken to hospital where Steer and one other person were pronounced dead.



Should the next Police Commissioner be recruited from overseas?
