Eleven People Hospitalised After Multiple-Vehicle Collision In Castries


Emergency personnel from the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) responded Sunday afternoon to a multiple-vehicle collision in Castries and transported eleven people to the hospital.

An emergency official told St Lucia Times that Castries Headquarters and the Gros Islet and Babonneau fire stations responded to the incident on the Vide Bouteille Highway.

“It was initially a three-vehicle crash – minibus, motor car, and a pickup, all heading North. There were several persons involved. We transported eleven. Three refused medical attention,” the official explained.

“A second minibus hit one of the three vehicles already involved in the accident – the pickup. So, in total, four vehicles became involved. But initially, there were three,” the official disclosed.

“It was just a touch,” the official said regarding the last accident.

There are no further details at present.

  1. We need more traffic officers on the beat look at how fast they drive on the st Jude highway by Home depot going up to the brewery . The traffic department need to put a speed limit and also signs on that road where are the traffic officers to man the streets and highways .

  2. Senseless accidents. Don’t those young people know the level of frustration, pain and suffering that they incur on people. Stupidity alone that’s happening.

  3. Minibus drivers again. Why can’t minibus drivers take their time. They will stop anyhow, overtake anywhere. They crippling the nation for a dollar.

  4. Public transportation should be Nationalized in an effort to have some Order on the Roads.
    It seems that there is some competition on the Roads, the reason for this I don’t understand. A small 4×4 Island with one lane going north one lane going south, what’s the hurry? drivers with senseless attitudes, uncivilized and stupid need to be transformed by placing all Buses under – Nationalized ‘Public Transportation’ – with strict orders ‘Not to speed beyond limits’ or elseface being Fired. Bad attitude, bad upbringing, savagery.
