St John woman hurt in crash

A vehicular accident yesterday afternoon left a woman complaining of chest pains. But adding to Kathy Pinder’s woes was her difficulty in getting an ambulance to take her to hospital.
She was injured when the car she was driving was involved in a collision with a van at the junction of Belle Road and Howells Cross Road, St Michael, around 12:50 p.m.
Pinder, 48, of Venture, was taken for private medical attention by her pastor, Lemuel Rawlins, after she waited more than two hours for an ambulance to arrive. Numerous calls were made to the emergency number 511 but the response was that no ambulances were available.
The van involved in the accident ended up on its side. It was driven by Reynold Scantlebury. He and his passenger, Donovan Smith sought medical attention. (RL)
