A motor vehicle collision on Trafalgar Road in St Andrew on Tuesday morning resulted in a power line catching fire.

The circumstances which led to the traffic accident are unclear, but photos circulating on social media indicate that at least three vehicles, including a taxi, were involved in the collision which toppled a utility pole and ignited a fire on the power lines.

The incident resulted in a traffic buildup in the area as the Trafalgar Road, Hope Road and Holborn Road intersections were cordoned off by police and firefighters, who were quick on the scene. One motorist captured the fire on video and shared the footage on social media. Check out the video below.
