Close call for elderly woman

Social Share

Seventy-six-year-old Etpheline Nurse had a brush with death when a truck involved in an accident along Mapp Hill Main Road, St Michael, overturned and crashed into a veranda where she was sitting moments earlier.
The drivers of the four vehicles involved in the accident, one of which ended up on its side, also escaped serious injury.
The accident, which residents said occurred at about 11:45 a.m. left Nurse shaken and she had to seek medical attention.
Nurse’s daughter Angela Taylor, herself shaken by the accident, said her mother was sitting in the gallery, but was fortunate enough to see the vehicles coming and ran inside before the impact.
A truck owned by C.O.Williams Construction Company and driven by Whitfield Bolden demolished the veranda, and one of its wheels broke off and came to rest in that area. (LK)
