Sandals team members who were involved in a vehicular collision on the Castries to Gros Islet Highway have escaped severe injury.
Reports are that a staff bus with 15 team members was headed to the Sandals Grande Resort on Tuesday when, on approaching the Morgan Bay resort in Choc Bay, a car headed in the opposite direction appeared to lose control and hit the bus. The staff vehicle veered off course but quick action by the driver averted a collision with a truck. However the bus ran in to a wall.
Sandals wishes to express gratitude to the entire management and staff of Morgan Bay resort, who rushed to the assistance of the injured team members providing care and comfort, and even helping with transportation as they awaited the arrival of the emergency services.
The majority of injured suffered cuts and bruises and were eventually discharged. Three people have been kept at hospital for observation.
Meanwhile Police investigations are continuing into the circumstances surrounding the road accident.
