Ten passengers in a Transport Board bus are thanking their lucky stars after the vehicle in which they were travelling ended up on its side in a canefield at Harrisons, St Lucy yesterday. According to a police report, 45-year-old Walter Henderson Lewis, the driver, apparently lost control of the bus and it slid into a canefield and fell on its right side around 7:20 a.m One passenger Tesha Norville, 32, of Northumberland, St Lucy, is said to have sustained a fractured right foot and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) by ambulance. The other nine passengers sustained minor injuries and were carried to the hospital and a polyclinic by a Transport Boad bus. (JS/PR)
