A minibus driver, a female passenger, and a female pedestrian were in hospital on Sunday after the vehicle’s brakes failed while coming from the direction of the Cultural Centre and descending Barnard Hill in Castries.

According to reports, instead of  completing a right turn into the City, the minibus ran into  another vehicle, and hit the female pedestrian and a perimeter wall.

Emergency personnel from the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) Headquarters in Castries responded with a fire truck and an ambulance after receiving a distress call at about 9:47 am.

  1. lol brake failure ? the easiest thing to say. and these buses going for inspection boy sometimes I wonder. death traps

  2. Still charge him, because there are numerous ways he could have stop the bus before causing accident or endangering those people lives in the bus and on the street. If the bus is manual then take nothing for excuse. Not a highly skilled driver to serve the public and he might be one of many.
