Pedestrian Rushed To Hospital After Being Struck By A Vehicle


Emergency personnel from the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) rushed a male pedestrian to the OKEU Hospital Sunday after a vehicle struck him at Bois D’Orange.

A Gros Islet fire station crew responded after receiving the accident report at about 6:00 p.m.

The circumstances surrounding the accident were not immediately apparent.

But a social media video showed the victim on the ground with anxious individuals at his side.

Two male voices off-camera urge them not to touch or shift the injured man.

Earlier in the day, a vehicle plunged over a precipice at Sarrot, Bexon, ejecting the driver, who was unresponsive when emergency personnel transported him to the hospital.

Also, on Sunday, a motorcyclist sustained injuries due to a collision with a car at Ravine Poisson, Bexon.

  1. Am not saying the pedestrian is wrong however we must educate our nation in this regard.
    There is urgent need to to place crossing lights at the crossing (Vieux Fort Town Plasa) outside KFC.

    A ticking time. Unbelievable….the behaviour of the people on the crossing.

    Can you imagine the traffic back up to “WILL ROCK” by the marine police barracks.

    Traffic department this require urgent attention.
    Please !!!!!

  2. These i find are happening frequently dem days. I wonder if there will be any attempt to use the inestigations form the police, analyse the causes and come up with a solution. I wonder. Dept. of Transport. Anyone?/

  3. We run like cats when we have to cross the roads becuz the roads are built only for vehicles not people too
