A teenager lost control of the car she was driving yesterday and slammed into a bus shed outside the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic (SJPP) in Wildey, St Michael, before knocking out a section of the institute’s guard wall.
Khadijah Thomas, 18, of Oldbury, St Philip, sought private medical attention after complaining of pain to her hand and shoulder, police said. The accident occurred about 12:30 p.m. and the bus shelter was destroyed while parts of the car ended up across the road.
Meanwhile, in another accident, a pedestrian was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital after being involved in a collision with a car at the corner of Bridge Street and Trafalgar Street, Bridgetown.
Alison Rowe, 35, of Six Roads, St Philip, was hit while crossing the road around 8:25 a.m., police said. The car was driven by 72-year-old Robert Hope of Paynes Bay, St James.
Rowe complained of pains to the neck and back. (RL)
