A group of tourists who were involved in a fatal traffic accident in Trelawny in January of last year are reportedly suing Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.

In January, 2016 eight passengers aboard the Independence of the Seas reportedly booked a day excursion to Dunn’s River Falls after the vessel docked in Falmouth. 

However, while on their way back from Dunn’s River, they met in a terrible accident.

According to police reports of the incident, a Toyota Coaster bus with the visiting passengers was travelling along the Carey Park main road towards Falmouth in Trelawny, when the driver of a Freightliner motor truck travelling in the opposite direction, failed to keep left, and collided with the Coaster bus, resulting in the latter vehicle overturning.

One of the passengers, 32-year-old Crystal Glewwe, died as a result of the impact.

Prior to the deadly collision, passengers reportedly asked to slow down, but the driver replied saying that he was driving “the way everyone typically drove in Jamaica.”

In the lawsuit, the tourists claim that the Coaster driver continuously changed lanes while speeding.

The lawsuit also states that the the excursion group’s driver had a slow reaction to a vehicle that had entered their lane. Passengers say the driver didn’t get out of the way and the bus was subsequently broadsided, causing it to flip multiple times.
