Four children were mowed down by a delivery truck Friday afternoon along Eastwood Park Road in Half Way Tree, St Andrew. There are unconfirmed reports that one of the children died as a result of the accident.
The Corporate Communication Unit, the information arm of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, confirmed the incident, but could not give any updates on the medical condition of the children.
"The children were transported straight to hospital, we have no updates on their condition yet," a CCU representative told OBSERVER ONLINE.
Reports are that a delivery truck slammed into the four children who attend a primary school in the area.
