Police Emphasise Road Safety Amid Probe Into Fatal Crash At Micoud


On Saturday, September 23, 2023, about 6:15 PM, officers attached to the Micoud Police Station responded to a report of a vehicular collision along the Micoud to Vieux Fort highway at Canelles.

The incident involved a white Honda CRV, driven by Franzie Augustin, a thirty-one year-old resident of High Street Dennery.

Preliminary investigations indicate that the vehicle veered off the road and collided with a stationary vehicle. The force of the collision resulted in the overturning of Franzie Augustin’s vehicle.

The motor vehicle driven by Franzie Augustin was damaged extensively as a result of the collision and Franzie Augustin succumbed to the injuries he sustained.

Three other male passengers on-board the vehicle sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and are currently in stable condition.

Every life lost on the road is a tragedy that can be prevented.

We urge you to prioritize road safety and drive responsibly. Remember, your actions behind the wheel have a direct impact on the lives of others.

By following traffic rules, maintaining safe speeds, and avoiding distractions, you can help create a safer environment for everyone. Stay safe and drive responsibly.

  1. Great speech from the RSLPF. Another speech after an incident by the authorities to be followed by a ‘concerned’ speech by another person in authority and then back to seating and chillin and then another speech and an other speech. NO ACTION. NO PLAN by the authorities to help curb such incidents.

  2. There’s no Beat and patrol .No Traffic patrols in Sf.Lucia.On the Roads In St.Lucia this is really a Disgrace .There are more Supervisor’s and Nothing being Done .Too many highly Educated Supervisor’s .From the 80’s to early 2000 the Rslpf was a top police Force in the Caribbean.All the Dedicated police officers have Retired and now is Highly Educated Men and women and Nothing happening its so bad and sad

  3. America has all the patrols in the world and there’s fatal accidents everyday. Police cannot be is the duty and responsibility of every driver to drive safely and matter where in the world you are…ppl need to stop this nonsense about police patrol and learn to be more responsible…
