PSTEB head Assistant Commissioner Gary McKenzie told Radio Jamaica News that Corporal Forrester was dressed in uniform and driving his marked police motorcycle in a southerly direction along King Street. 
When he got to the intersection of King Street and Tower Street, a panel van coming from Tower Street collided with the motorcycle.
