Saint Lucia Records First Road Fatality For 2023


Saint Lucia has recorded its first road fatality for 2023 with the death of a Bois Den, Jacmel man on Monday following a collision involving two vehicles the previous day.

Police have identified the deceased as 25-year-old Chandele Jules.

The collision occurred at Bexon at about 10:30 pm between a Suzuki car and an SUV.

Emergency personnel reported that when they arrived at the accident scene, they transported four seriously injured people to the OKEU Hospital, all of whom were occupants of the Suzuki.

However, the emergency responders said they did not transport any of the three occupants of the SUV to the hospital.

  1. You people are quick to come and comment negative things. If you have nothing good to say, keep it moving.

  2. I have been driving for 52 years, and while I find residents of Saint Lucia drive extremely fast, most of the accidents are due to very poor, extremely poor road designs. I view the Bexon Road as a highway with lots of corners, but not enough leverage to avoid accidents and very poor street lighting. The worse road though is the Choc to Vide Boutielle Double Carriage. That is a death trap and there will always be accidents because the lanes are too narrow. The EMS people should petition to have the barriers removed and make it a regular two-lane road which allows for overtaking and emergency lanes. Not sure who designed that road and many other of the bottlenecks. They need to be held accountable for every blood that is shed on these roads.
