Multi-vehicle crash slows traffic on Portmore toll road

A muti-vehicle collision on the Portmore leg of Highway 2000 resulted in undue delays for motorists using the thoroughfare on Monday morning.

The accident reportedly occurred in the vicinity of the bridge that takes traffic onto Marcus Garvey Drive and onto downtown Kingston.

Eyewitness reports indicate that at least four cars were involved in the crash which took place shortly before 8:00 o'clock.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was hurt in the crash but the police were quick on the scene to help manage the flow of traffic.

It appeared that motorists who slowed to observe the crash scene contributed to the traffic congestion along the usually busy highway. 

More details will be provided when they become available.
