A Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) bus crashed into a light post at the bus bay in South Parade in downtown Kingston on Tuesday morning.

Persons claiming to be eyewitnesses said the incident occurred about 10am. The driver reportedly lost control of the vehicle as it was turning into the bay, and the vehicle mounted the sidewalk where passengers usually gather to board vehicles, before ramming into the light pole.

“Is a good thing nobody was there cause if anybody was there the bus woulda scrape dem way,” a woman said.

The bus was removed by the public transport company, but remnants of the windscreen were left at the scene.

There were no reported injuries.
