SAVED “by the Grace of God”.

That was how Arita Williams-Farley described the narrow escape of 16 students of the Daryll Jordan Secondary School students with just minor injuries yesterday when the route taxi in which they were travelling overturned on Bentham’s Road, St Lucy at around 9:15 a.m.

Williams-Farley, who visited the scene to collect her 15-year-old son Rick Williams, one of the passengers in the vehicle, said: “When I saw the condition of the van . . . I said it is the grace of God. Had it not been, I do not think the people in the van would be here.”

Also thankful to be alive was 15-year-old Baggio Williams, who complained of pain in his right shoulder. He said he was glad to be able to walk away from the scene.
