persons were hospitalized following a motor vehicle crash in the vicinity of
the Royalton hotel in Trelawny on Monday it’s reported that the driver lost
control of a motor vehicle which careened from the road before flipping
over the area has been labeled a crash hot spot and again raises concerns about
how motorists use the roadway of the four persons a woman appeared to be the
most seriously hurt the injured persons were assisted by passers-by as well as a
crew from the Falmouth Fire Department they however had to improvise using a
piece of ply board to hoist the injured into the ambulance medical doctor by profession so I just
simply stopped to give some humanitarian four persons we’re into the private they
skidded off the road essentially for accidents of this nature
whenever it is wet it’s very and so I suppose that was one of the
electives that let me take today eridan after you seem to be very here
are very injured two other Stevens I will just send them up for the ambulance
from the hospital there’s a call for an end to violence against the nation’s
children on Friday teachers and students from Marin Bay High School in San Tomas
took to the streets to voice concerns about repeated cases of abuse being
meted out to children coordinator of the March Claudette Johnson says the aim is
to encourage more children to break the silence and speak up about issues
affecting them as what happened sometime is that it was in the classroom they see
things happening and they do nothing and we are aware that even in the parish in
their communities they are either a victim of violence or their friends or
their neighbor both through these things so we wanted them to actually start the
conversation to so that we can talk to them on the issues so we can help them
to help themselves within the school community or even to help their friends
within the community miss Johnson also wants to see more
schools coming on board to join the cause I saw a lady actually crying
saying that look at the children crying out who is joining them in this process
so I believe if we start the conversation something will happen and
I’m just hoping that as we ask the questions as they ask the questions of
their parents and all stakeholders continue the conversation then something
must gain and it’s time for preview of what’s coming up in this evenings health
