This morning, a police van carrying prisoners to court erupted into flames on George Price Highway. The incident occurred sometime after eight-thirty near mile sixteen just outside of Hatteville Village. According to police the driver of the van, which was carrying five prisoners to court, noticed fire coming from its hood. Which prompted him to park on the side of the road and transfer the prisoners to another van. Fire personnel were called out to extinguish the fire. And, fortunately, no one was injured in the incident but the entire front portion of the van was destroyed. Supervisor at the National Fire Service Kenneth Mortis says the fire was caused by an electrical shortage in the van’s strobe light.
