Jamaica News, St James: A 41-year-old bus operator narrowly missed being killed, and is presently nursing injuries at the Cornwall Regional Hospital, after a bus which he was driving plunged hundreds of feet in a Gorge, at Long Hill, in Montego Bay, St James.
Reports by the Anchovy police are that about 3:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, the bus operator who resides at Lilliput, in St. James, was proceeding from the directions of Anchovy towards Montego Bay.
While traveling down the deadly Long Hill main road, the driver failed to keep to his right and lost control of the vehicle, which plunged over a cliff and crashed in a Gorge below.
The driver was assisted from the wreckage by other passing motorists, and he was rushed to the Cornwall Regional Hospital, where he was treated and admitted.
The accident resulted in a massive traffic pile-up, which stretched for miles in both directions, along Long Hill.
It took the police several hours to clear the roadway and to have traffic flowing steadily as usual.
In the meanwhile, several motorists told our news team that they are calling on the National Works Agency, and the Minister of Transport to address the very deadly long hill main road, which has grown to be a very serious death trap over recent years.
