A fatal accident on the highway near to Beetham Gardens is causing heavy traffic for motorists heading to the capital city, Port-of-Spain.
The Trinidad and Tobago Police Service -Traffic Division has opened the Priority Bus Route from Mt. Hope to Port of Spain in an effort to ease the traffic congestion on the highway. However, Ministry of Works and Transport has refuted those claims in a tweet, saying the PBR is closed to unauthorised vehicles.
Although information about the accident is still forthcoming, we were able to get some eye witness videos from the accident this morning. Persons are stating that the accident was fatal, but we are yet to learn how many people were involved and if, in fact, there were fatalities.
