One man is now in hos­pi­tal nurs­ing in­juries he sus­tained in a three-ve­hi­cle col­li­sion along the Al­bion main road in St Thomas last evening.

Four oth­ers, who were also rushed to hos­pi­tal, have since been treated and re­leased.

Re­ports reach­ing THE WEEK­END STAR are that the in­ci­dent oc­curred some­time af­ter 6 p.m., and in­volved a truck, SUV and a mo­tor car.

It is fur­ther re­ported that a Toy­ota Corolla mo­tor car trav­el­ling from Kingston tried to over­take a line of traf­fic, al­most col­lid­ing with a truck trav­el­ling in the op­po­site direc­tion.

The truck driver re­port­edly swerved to avoid a head-on col­li­sion. Both the truck and the mo­tor car col­lided with the Suzuki Vi­tara which was al­ready in the traf­fic.

This re­sulted in a pile-up of traf­fic that ex­tended as far as the Grants Pen com­mu­nity, which is about 6.5 kilo­me­tres from Al­bion.

A wrecker ar­rived on the scene two hours later to re­move the ve­hi­cles.
