The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre understands that one of the tourists injured in yesterday’s deadly motor vehicle crash in Falmouth, Trelawny, will be airlifted to the United States for treatment.
Police investigators say the driver of the sport utility vehicle (SUV) involved in the crash will face criminal charges.
Reports say the decision to transfer the female tourist to the US for treatment was taken after it was discovered that she suffered a fracture in her neck.
However, her condition is not considered life-threatening.
Five persons including a mother and her daughter were killed in the early morning collision which occurred after the driver of a SUV tried to overtake a bus transporting tourists and slammed head-on into a taxi carrying seven persons.
One investigator reports that the driver of the SUV has been hospitalised, but says he will be charged with causing death by dangerous driving after he is released.
