Woman hit by truck in Cross Roads hospitalised

News post August 12, 2016

A woman narrowly escaped death yesterday after she was hit by a trailer truck in Cross Roads, St Andrew.

The driver of the vehicle, who was questioned by the Cross Roads Police, said that the woman was attempting to make her way across the road when she was hit.

“A cross she a cross the road and the truck hit har, but mi nuh know which part she get hit,” he told the

Jamaica Observer.

Police Constable Oliver Livingston said the woman, whose identity was not ascertained up until press time last night, was rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital for treatment. However, the severity of her injuries was not known. In the meantime, Constable Livingston used the incident to appeal to pedestrians to observe the traffic lights and to use the pedestrian crossing. He said the police have been grappling with the wanton disregard for the proper use of the road by pedestrians in the Cross Roads area, which has resulted in several mishaps. He said that more needs to be done to educate pedestrians how to be safe on the roads.
