Woman Hospitalised After Being Struck By Vehicle In Castries


The Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) transported a woman who appeared to be in her thirties to the OKEU Hospital on Tuesday after a vehicle struck her on Micoud Street, Castries.

SLFS Communications Officer Stacy Joseph said when emergency personnel from Castries Headquarters responded, they found the woman on the ground complaining of body pains.

Joseph disclosed that the responders immobilised the victim on a backboard before transporting her to the hospital for further medical attention.

There are no further details at present.

  1. This young visually impaired woman needs to be compensated by that truck owners company period…. Shaking my phockin head how could this monster truck roll on this 30 year old blind lady? Smph Govt please intervene with her hospital bills. Woiiii drivers need to slow the phock down!

  2. a blind lady aa that a true but how do you know she was blind though? and where did this happen was it on a pedestrian crossing or what?

  3. you see thats the thing about reading comments you dont know the persons expression because all you see are just words. I never told the guy anything wrong all i am asking is how he or she knew what transpired cause the story never gave any exact detail of all that transpired. you will find i not making sense cause you dont have no understanding all yall do is read to bash people instead or reading to understand where people are coming from.

  4. It’s amazing how insurance and drivers still get away with accidents that leave people hurt and or physically challenged and they not held accountable in court with compassion for their negligent actions,our people need to be educated about their rights in these aspects so they don’t have to suffer from drivers incompetence.

  5. How do you know it was the drivers fault? We’re you there. What traffic soft ware is available for the hearing impaired and blind in st Lucia. Do the traffic lights make sounds so the hearing impaired know when to cross. Was she crossing at the right place. All you people just like to beat your gums without knowing the facts. No one wakes up in the morning towork hoping to hit someone with a truck. St Lucian will never change.
