Premier's press chief injured in freak London accident

Premier Alden McLaughlin’s press secretary Tammie C. Chisholm suffered a broken leg Tuesday in an auto-pedestrian crash during which she was struck by another pedestrian who went flying though the air after he was hit by a speeding car.

The accident happened just after 5 p.m. London time near the Cayman Islands London Office.

The premier and senior members of his staff and his government are in London this week for a number of events, including a House of Lords speech Mr. McLaughlin gave Tuesday at the invitation of Caribbean Council President Lord Foulkes of Cumnock.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Service, who described the accident, said a vehicle passing through a central London intersection struck a man who was crossing the road.

The force of the collision carried the man into Ms. Chisholm’s path, breaking her leg. She has been in hospital since Tuesday evening.
