No Serious Injuries After Three Vehicle Collision in Hamilton Parish

Around 6pm Saturday, February 9th police and fellow first responders were dispatched to a reported three vehicle collision at the junction of North Shore Road and Somers Hill Road in Hamilton parish.

It appears that the collision occurred as a car driver attempting to exit Somers Hill Road and a light truck driver traveling in the eastbound lane of North Shore Road were struck by another car driver traveling eastward, who attempted to overtake the light truck.

All three vehicles involved were damaged, with the eastbound car ending up on an embankment and the light truck over the embankment, ending up on the Railway Trail.
