Four People Transported To Hospital After Pavee Bus Crash


On Tuesday, Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) personnel transported four passengers to the OKEU Hospital after a minibus crashed into a house at Pavee, Castries.

The four received treatment for minor injuries before emergency responders rushed them to the hospital.

They were among nine passengers on board the vehicle.

But the other five declined to be transported by the three ambulances that responded to the incident.

Fire Service spokeswoman Stacy Joseph said those who declined signed release forms.

Joseph said the fire service received a report regarding the minibus crash at about 4:20 pm.

The vehicle driver blamed the crash on brake failure.

A grandmother in her eighties who would usually sit in the area of the house where the bus hit was inside at the time, watching her favourite television show.

Her grandson, who was also inside, thanked God that although she was a little shaken, the woman was unhurt.

The police are investigating the crash.

  1. I have seen many reports of individuals in St. Lucia involved in accidents refusing medical treatment. I am net sure why, however; I think it would be wise to at least get medically evaluated when involved in an accident. Why – because not all injuries are visible from the outside.
