Woman critical after vehicular accident

A Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) supervisor, Yvonne Richards, is currently in a critical condition at the Mount St. John’s Medical Centre, after a vehicular collision on Old Parham Road.

The accident occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday as Richards was traveling from work to her home in Parham.
According to Richards’ brother Ognel, his sister received life-threatening injuries when another vehicle rammed into the passenger side of the jeep that her boyfriend, commonly know as “Monk,” was driving.

Richards also told OBSERVER media yesterday that his sister received a severe blow to the head and burns on her body from her neck down.

He said his sister suffered a “really deep wound” and burns from heated radiator water which sprung from the other vehicle.

Richards said that his sister’s boyfriend and the other driver escaped with little to no injuries.

When contacted by OBSERVER media, Head of the Traffic Department, Inspector Elson Quammie, said that the driver of the other vehicle was arrested on the spot and taken to the hospital for a medical check-up before being escorted to the St. John’s Police Station where he was expected to be charged.

Meanwhile, the driver of a vehicle that ran into the CostPro Supermarket on Friday is also expected to be charged.

The vehicle which smashed into the supermarket, almost struck a female shopper, who was leaving the supermarket.
The licence of both drivers have been immediately suspended.

Inspector Quammie told OBSERVER media that individuals who break the law on weekends or public holidays will not be granted bail during that period. He said that people have to learn the hard way.
