Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) personnel transported two people to the OKEU Hospital Wednesday after their vehicles collided at Bois D’Orange.
The emergency response at about 10:15 pm involved crews from the SLFS Headquarters in Castries and the Gros Islet fire station.
Videos on social media showed the mangled metal of two vehicles that collided – one with KFC Delivery marking on the side and a minibus.
Fire Service Communications Officer Stacy Joseph disclosed that on arrival, the responders found a minibus driver trapped in his vehicle and used extrication tools to free him.
“The driver of the other vehicle was found on the ground complaining of body pain,” Joseph said.
She explained that the responders immobilised the patients who sustained various bodily injuries.
Afterward, the patients were transferred to the waiting ambulances, where the emergency personnel treated their wounds.
The emergency crews then rushed the patients to the OKEU Hospital for further medical care.
