Tourists sustain minor injures in bus crashTuesday, May 29, 2012
WESTERN BUREAU — Twenty-five tourists escaped serious injuries yesterday when a tour bus in which they were travelling overturned near Rock in Trelawny.
The bus, according to a police report, overturned near the Rock leg of the North Coast Highway after it was involved in a collision with a motor car which had attempted to rejoin the line of traffic after overtaking.
The visitors who were enroute to Ocho Rios in St Ann from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, were taken to the Falmouth Hospital Public Hospital where 22 of them were treated for minor injuries and released. The others were also treated for their injuries, but they were admitted for further observation.
Tourism Minister Wykeham McNeill last night extended his sympathy to the injured, but expressed relief that no lives were lost.
