11 people killed in road crashes at the weekend

At least 11 people were killed in road crashes at the weekend.


One of the fatalities occurred on Saturday, while 10 were recorded, yesterday.


They occurred in Clarendon, St. Catherine, St. Mary and St. Andrew.


In the latest incident last night, five young men died from injuries they sustained after the three motorcycles they were travelling on, collided with a Toyota Hiace minibus in Golden Spring St. Andrew.


The number of people killed on the nation’s roadways since the start of the year is now 67.


Vice Chairman of the National Road Safety Council Dr. Lucien Jones says the high number of road deaths recorded at the weekend indicates a national crisis.


He says all Jamaicans must work together to address the issue.
