Parents call for crash probe

Parents of children attending Grantley Adams Memorial School in St Joseph are demanding an urgent investigation by the Transport Board and police into a serious accident which occurred late Friday while a group of students were on board a Transport Augmentation Programme (TAP) van.

They told the Daily Nation the driver went “off-route” and drove the vehicle up the treacherous Braggs Hill, also in St Joseph, where it suddenly careened down the hill before slamming into a wall next to a gully.

What has the parents even more incensed is that the driver subsequently drove off “without checking on the safety of the children or waiting for the police to arrive”.

A parent whose 17-year-old son was on board said that about ten children who were stranded at the school around 5:55 p.m., were instructed to get into the TAP van which was going to Bridgetown because the next available bus was leaving the terminal at 6 p.m. (MB)
