Two policemen who were injured when the police vehicle in which they were travelling crashed, while rushing to one of Monday's shootings in St. Catherine remain in critical condition in hospital.

The policemen were leaving the scene of the drive-by shooting along the Spanish Town bypass, and heading towards another shooting in the Old Harbour road area when their service vehicle collided with a taxi cab at the entrance to the Innswood Villa Housing Scheme on Featherbed Lane.

The van overturned into a trench.

The two cops suffered serious injuries and were rushed to hospital.

The taxi driver and his passenger escaped injuries.
