KINGSTON, Jamaica — The driver of a Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) bus escaped serious injuries this morning after crashing into an overturned trailer truck on the Golden Spring main road in northern St Andrew.

The truck driver was unhurt.

It is said that the bus driver was on his way to pick up passengers when he crashed about 5:05 am.

A JUTC investigator told OBSERVER ONLINE that based on conditions at that time, the driver did not see the truck and despite braking, was unable to prevent the crash.

He was taken to hospital for treatment.
