JLP Chairman and Transport Minister, Robert Montague, is renewing his call for all Jamaicans to observe the rules of the road and exercise caution.
He renewed his call via a statement to the media this afternoon in which he noted the sharp increase in deaths on the nation’s roads this year.
During the statement, Mr. Montague says the JLP is thankful that today’s crash involving National Security Minister, Dr. Horace Chang, his security personnel and a civilian, wasn’t fatal.
The JLP Chairman says Dr. Chang is at home resting with family and was not seriously injured.
A Toyota Prado in which Dr. Chang was a passenger and an AD wagon motorcar were involved in a collision in the Grants Pen community in St. Andrew at approximately 5:40 this morning.
The Prado reportedly overturned then flipped twice.
Minister Chang was carried to the Tony Thwaites Wing of the University Hospital of the West Indies, where he did precautionary tests and was released.
The Minister’s bodyguards sustained some external injuries.
They were also treated and released.
The driver of the AD Wagon motorcar was reportedly not hurt.
