A MOTHER AND SON were injured in an accident on the Spring Garden Highway this evening.

According to an eyewitness, they had swerved to avoid a vehicle which cut in front of them and crashed.

The car hit a pole on the Highway and that fell in the direction of another vehicle on the road. Two women, who were travelling in the second car, avoided the pole and then went back to assist those who were injured.

The eyewitness told NATION Online the occupants of the car which had cut in front of the vehicle, did not stop.

The car was travelling towards Bridgetown. The accident occurred near the open pasture opposite Courts warehouse.

One ambulance responded to the scene.

Meanwhile, emergency personnel also responded to another accident at the bottom of University Drive where one car crashed into the back of another.  (AC)
