TEN PEOPLE were injured in a two-vehicle accident at Thornbury Hill, Christ Church, yesterday.The accident, which occurred around 3 p.m., involved a Transport Board bus driven by Theophilus Belgrave of Cottage Vale, St Philip, and a private motor car driven by Trevor Small of Bawdens, St Andrew. The bus ended up on top of the car, crushing it and causing extensive damage.  Fire officials were summoned to the scene of the accident and used the “jaws of life” to free Small.Six of the ten passengers were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment, and the other four were taken to Randall Phillips Polyclinic in Oistins.Reports are that the bus was travelling in the direction of Bridgetown on Callenders Road when it came into contact with the car, which was exiting Lloyd’s Court, the gap on the right, on to Callenders. Both vehicles ended up a few metres from a house on the left-hand side of the road. (GS)
