Overturned maxi-taxi causes traffic in the West

Drivers are advised of heavy traffic heading west due to an accident along the Western Main Road near Cocorite.

Video footage shared via social media showed west-bound traffic backing up in all directions after a yellow-band maxi-taxi was involved in an accident, resulting in the vehicle flipping onto its side. 

The incident reportedly occurred after midday on Thursday.

The vehicle has since been moved from the roadway, however, residual traffic was still reported up to 5:00 pm along Mucurapo Road, Wrightson Road and Maraval Parkway, heading west. 

Drivers are advised to seek alternative routes or to wait it out until the traffic has subsided.
