At least three more people died as a result of two traffic crashes, last evening.

In one of the crashes, two male students of the Jamaican- German Automotive School in St Andrew were killed in Hanover.

Head of the Constabulary’s Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch, PSTEB, Senior Superintendent Calvin Allen says the cause of the crash has not yet been determined.

He says the other four men were admitted in the hospital. The other crash happened along the Melrose bypass in Manchester last evening.
