Emergency personnel from the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) Crash Fire Hall in Vieux Fort transported a motorcyclist to St Jude Hospital on Sunday night after a road accident in Laborie.
At about 7:34 pm, the emergency crew received a call for assistance regarding a collision involving a motor vehicle and a motorbike.
The responders found that the motorcyclist had sustained multiple injuries but was ‘fully alert’.
They treated his injuries before transporting him to the hospital.
There are no further details at present.

Again…revoke all bikers licenses and start from scratch….wth is King waiting for!
These crash dummies never learn. “MOST” (not all) of these bike riders never have helmet and 90% of them cannot ride. They have no formal training of learning to ride. Most of them learn to ride in the savan on dirt roads and they go buy bikes that to heavy and to fast for them to handle, so they keep dying and getting injured like the crash dummies they are.
Another thing is, why are the authorities allowing these guys to traverse the road ways with out helmets, sometimes no insurance, reckless, speeding. This country is just out of control. They need to start clamping down on them, they are a safty hazard on the road ways.
THE LAW MUST BE ENFORCED AND HELLO…… POLITICIANS, SOME LAWS MUST CHANGE AND GET AMENDED IN DEVELOPING SOCIETIES !!
May be the police need a raise, times are getting dangerous for police. THEY NEED MORE MORE AND MORE EQUIPMENT TO DO THEIR JOB. (PJP that’s your ministry do something).
Am hopeful that the new female acting commissioner will take this opportunity to enforce the laws and do things different than her male colleagues. These guys don’t wear helmets, why the law is not being enforced? Are Saint Lucian traffic officers just lazy? Why are these bikes not being seized for lack of proper documents (some of them).
Am not saying this paticular rider in this article was breaking the law. It’s just too many accidents, slackness and lawlessness on these roads.
You have so many vehicular accidents, as a society you need to find a way to mitigate this. and the answer is not speed bumps.
You really think these guys have licenses in the first place? Think about things before you comment.
