Several students of the Steer Town Academy in St. Ann were injured in a bus crash while en route to school this morning (December 6).


Twenty-five students were being transported in the bus when the accident occurred along the Steer Town main road.


According to Deputy Superintendent of Police, Rudolph Taylor, at about 7:30 AM, a Toyota Hiace bus collided into a column.



DSP Taylor says the bus exceeded the capacity of 15 passengers.



Just last month 16 students were injured when the mini bus in which they were traveling plunged over a precipice in Long Bay, Portland.


The police said the bus was overcrowded and students were sitting in each other’s laps.
