A cyclist was today rushed to hospital following an incident involving a Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) bus on Hagley Park Road/ Waltham Park Road intersection in St Andrew this morning.

A video, which has been circulating on social media, shows the man, appearing badly injured after he seemed to be run over by a JUTC bus.

The video shows the bus reversing to allow access to the man who was pinned under the unit.

According to JUTC’s Corporate Communications Manager, Cecil Thoms, both the cyclist and the driver of the bus are being treated at the hospital as the driver fainted upon seeing the man.
