However an oncoming vehicle, passed the police vehicle with its siren blaring, and did not slow down or stop. This did not give the following vehicles, the number four or number five vehicles in the motorcade to pass the slow vehicle. That driver, according to the Corporal went across to the other side of the road, going off the road in an attempt to avoid an accident and the speeding oncoming vehicle collided. That is the information I have in writing from the police.
The matter is under investigation because the driver in the motorcade attempted to avoid an accident. There is some provision that the police was using the siren and it was in one direction. The oncoming vehicle did not slow. That is a matter for the DPP to direct us on.?
Meanwhile, the boys who were injured, are still without proper medical attention as their father who was also involved in the collision – is now unemployed as a consequence of the mishap…
