According to the information, all three vehicles were travelling in an easterly direction. When the vehicle reached the highway, the motor truck smashed into one of the Probox motor cars. As a result of this collision, one of the Probox cars collided with the rear of the second Probox motor car, resulting in Rose throwing out of the vehicle.

Following this horrifying accident, Kevin Rose sustained severe injuries to the head. As per the details, all three drivers were taken to the May Pen Hospital with the help of the residents of the community

The residents of the community shared their views and opinions on the accident through their comments on social media. One person with a Facebook handle commented  “One person’s carelessness caused the loss of one of the quietest taxi drivers I’ve ever seen on the route. RIP.”

Another person commented the following I’m going to assume; he was not wearing a seatbelt. Why must people drive like crazies on the road dear father? Wear your seatbelts, people. It will save your life!”

The residents of Jamaica have also requested the administration to improve traffic law enforcement with the motive to reduce accidental rates.
