A Ministry of National Security vehicle this morning slammed into a house in Bristol Village, Mayaro causing major infrastructural damage. The house was home to a family of five.

Around 6.45 a Toyota Hilux, which was heading east along the Naparima/Mayaro Road, began to swerve out of control. 

The vehicle ran off the road, skated through the yard of a private resident, and slammed into a house next door. It hit the side of the house breaking down the walls. It eventually stopped inside the living room.

Catherine Mohammed, a mother of three, is now demanding that the Ministry of National security swiftly compensate her for the damages to her home.  

Mohammed said she and her children were “very traumatised” by the event but she was thankful that none of them was injured.

Aside from the driver, whose identity was not divulged, there were four NESC students in the vehicle. No one was hospitalised.
