Two confirmed dead in water truck accident, several others injured

Fire officials have confirmed two women are dead following an accident near Charlieville along the Uriah Butler Highway.

Chief Fire Officer Roosevelt Bruce confirmed two people died in the accident, while one person is listed in critical condition.

The delivery truck was proceeding along the south-bound lane of the highway when the driver lost control and crossed the median, according to reports.

A PTSC travelling in the opposite direction was hit by the truck, resulting in injuries to several passengers.

Police have blocked off part of the north-bound lane of the highway to facilitate the clearing of the roadway resulting in gridlock for motorists.

We will update this story as more information is available.
