The accident took place along the 10 Miles Main Road, Bull Bay. The route 97 JUTC bus was headed to 11 Miles, Bull Bay, with the car heading in the opposite direction. According to Detective Inspector Neville Graham of the St Thomas police division, the driver and his lone passenger suffered what he deemed to be minor injuries. Blood, however, could be seen on the side of the roadway which onlookers said were that of the victims. The driver of the JUTC bus was unharmed. Two Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) supporters had to be rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital after the car they were travelling in collided with a Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) bus.
