Man Injured In Hit-And-Run Incident At Roseau


Emergency responders from the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) headquarters in Castries responded to a hit-and-run report at Roseau.

The emergency responders received a report on Saturday that a vehicle struck a man at about 8:30 pm.

“The responding crew found an individual who appeared to be in their mid-forties lying on the road side with apparent trauma to their body,” SLFS Communications Officer Stacy Joseph disclosed.

“The individual who was allegedly struck by a vehicle was fully immobilised on a backboard and transferred to the awaiting ambulance,” Joseph said.

She said the ambulance transported the male victim to the OKEU Hospital for further care.

The man is understood to have sustained multiple fractures.

  1. Does anyone know the blood alcohol level of the victim in this incident? I am asking because as a driver…I had a couple of close calls along the bexon highway. Nonetheless hope he recovers well.

  2. #Just Asking …would you hit a drunk and run?…so what’s you point?

    If the criminal is caught he/she should be tried for attempted murder

  3. My point is : there are many drunkards walking on our roads and some even step into the way of moving vehicles…NOT saying this is the case but would like drivers to be extra cautious in the Bexon area. Hope this clears up your minuscule inner brain.
