Massive traffic has been experienced this morning, following an accident that has left one woman dead and sent four others to hospital. Their identities are unknown at this time. The accident, which involved an SUV and a flat bed truck, is reported to have happened at around 4:20am along the Churchill Roosevelt Highway.
Several motorists complained of the severity of the traffic pile up, leading into Port-of-Spain this morning, this even as several traffic police had been deployed in various areas, including at the Morvant Junction where vehicles would stream from the Beetham Highway heading West, onto the Lady Young Road. That in itself led to intense traffic delays for motorists who usually use the Eastern Main Road between San Juan and Morvant Junction.
The Priority Bus Route remains CLOSED to unauthorized motor vehicles. This has been underscored by the Transport Ministry.
