The Transport Authority has removed one of its officers from frontline duties as it continues to probe a crash which involved one of its units and a Toyota Coaster bus.
The crash occurred last Monday at the intersection of Hanover Street and East Queen Street in downtown, Kingston.
Allegations were raised that personnel from the transport authority had used their vehicle to ram into the passenger bus to get it to stop.
However, the authority said it is still probing the matter.
It said based on its preliminary investigation on the morning in question a joint Transport Authority/Police team was on operation when they saw a loaded Toyota Coaster bus along Hanover Street.
The transport authority further said the bus was deemed to be operating outside of the prescribed route and the driver was signaled to stop.
According to the agency, the driver disobeyed and in an attempt to flee collided with its vehicle.
The driver of the bus was held and later arrested and charged and the vehicle seized.
