ONLOOKERS WERE WONDERING how the passenger in the middle vehicle could have survived.
This was the scene along Little Bentley’s, St Philip, after a three-car collision left one car mangled.
Police report that the two cars were travelling in an easterly direction, towards Brereton, around 1:45 p.m. when the lead car skidded and hit cut rock on the left. This resulted in the driver losing control and the car careening over to the other side of the road and into the path of an oncoming skip truck. This collision caused the car to spin and crash into the car that was travelling behind it.
There were two occupants in the destroyed car: driver Andre Ashby, 18, of Halton Terrace, St Philip, and passenger Natasha Batson, also 18, of Pinelands, St Michael. They both suffered facial and head injuries and were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital via ambulance.
The driver of the truck was 59-year-old Frederick Straughn, of Monroe Road, St George. He sought private medical attention. The driver of the second car was Carol-Ann Browne, 31, of Wellhouse, St Philip. (CA)
