Accident causes downtown PoS gridlock

A mi­nor ac­ci­dent near the Cen­tral Bank Tow­ers in Port-of-Spain ear­li­er to­day caused a mas­sive traf­fic pile­up in the down­town parts of the cap­i­tal.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, two cars col­lid­ed at the bot­tom of Ed­ward Street, just be­fore where it in­ter­sects with South Quay head­ing east. One of the ve­hi­cles end­ed up on top of the oth­er and was un­able to move.

As such, po­lice had to call a wreck­er to re­move the ve­hi­cle. In the in­ter­im, how­ev­er, ve­hi­cles from Aber­crom­by Street and Wright­son Road could not ac­cess the road­way head­ing east.

Oth­er mo­torists slow­ing down to gawk at the ac­ci­dent al­so led to the back­up of traf­fic.
