A tractor driver was left thanking his lucky stars after a water tank he was transporting collided with a church at Porey Springs, St Thomas, on Thursday morning.

An eyewitness said she was at home when she heard a creaking sound and “ran up the gap to see what happened”. 

She said she was shocked to see that the tank, which was attached to the tractor, had overturned and landed on the front part of Revival Faith Centre at Dunscombe.

Although the cause of the accident could not be confirmed, another witness said it was felt the vehicle blew a tyre.

The driver was said to be shaken. (JS)
