Saint Lucia has so far recorded five road fatalities for the year.
In the line of duty….hope the details come out soon! Sad
Is it a minibus?
A Taxi Driver. Poor guy was trying to take hit off his rep and PM and fix potholes. Heard the driver said his brakes gave way. Question is how he eventually come to a stop. Am I gonna hear the usual. Drive with due care and attention and Speed Bumps from the govt officials. Well
if the government had fixed the roads instead of potholing valence would have been alive today.
G.W isn’t a potholing method of fixing the road? Some of you don’t even know what all you talking about. Feel so sorry for you GW.
Such an ignorant statement g.w. If our drivers would exercise caution on the roads and do proper maintenance on their vehicles maybe, just maybe, this tragedy could have been avoided. A family is in mourning tonight, because of someone’s careless choices NOT because of the government.
Valence and I were very close. I know him as Trevor and he called me Mummy. This is so sad.
The person who has his phone should try to contact his family in Trinidad. He lived alone. I wonder if his relatives know about his death.
