The vehicle was damaged moderately on the front section, while Mr Knowles and a female passenger Temeka Stuart of Eight Mile Rock, both sustained minor injuries.

A passerby driving an Isuzu SUV Mr Zavia Bastian, upon seeing the vehicle crashed into the bushes, pulled over to render assistance. After assessing the situation, he telephoned the police and remained at the scene with the Injured persons, until the ambulance and Traffic police officers arrived.

As a result of this compassionate act on the part of Mr Bastian, he was nominated as the "Most Courteous Driver of the Quarter-March 2015 ".

He was presented with an inscribed mahogany plaque and a gift certificate for a full tank of gasoline.
