PUBLIC SERVICE VEHICLE owners  need to reach out and help injured student Zakiyah Defreitas.

Morris Lee, of the Association of Public Transport Operators, last evening said it was important that they show compassion towards Defreitas,  who was severely injured last Tuesday in an accident involving a ZR van.

The 14-year-old Springer Memorial student lost an arm after the van in which she was travelling flipped while heading into the Nursery Drive Terminal. Twenty-one other passengers, including a number of Defreitas’  schoolmates, were also injured.

Lee, a long-time spokesman for the private operators sector, told colleagues attending a meeting last evening at the National Union of Public Workers, Dalkeith, St Michael, that it was important they showed a human face.
