Lucky break for two
A drinks delivery truck owned by SMJ Beverages overturned yesterday morning along Plum Tree Road in St James and collided with another truck that was travelling in the opposite direction.
According to a police report, driver of the truck, Ryan Thornhill, 27, of Coles Road, Bourne’s Village, St George complained of pains to a shoulder, while his passenger, Adrian Sparrock, 32, of Hindsbury Road, St Michael, said he felt pain in both legs and shoulders and opted to seek private medical attention.
The driver of the other truck, Peter Gibson 37, of No. 72 Simmons Land, Christ Christ, escaped unhurt.
The overturned vehicle caused the road to become impassable and it was only cleared at about 3.p.m.
One water tender from the Arch Hall Fire Station responded to the morning accident along with a Roving Response team and a crew from the Bagatelle Depot of the Ministry of Transport and Works who brought sand to cover the oil spilled from the overturned truck.
The drinks were transferred to another truck with the help of people on the scene. (RL)
