Female Passenger Hospitalised After Vehicle Accident At Roseau


On Sunday, emergency personnel from the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) transported a female passenger to the OKEU Hospital after a motor vehicle ran off the road along the Roseau stretch.

The male driver declined transportation via ambulance.

The emergency responders rushed to the scene after learning of the accident at about 4:07 p.m.

On arrival, they found that the female passenger, who appeared to be in her fifties, had sustained what seemed to be minor injuries.

The cause of the accident was not immediately apparent.

However, Saint Lucia has witnessed a recent spike in road accidents, prompting Fire Chief Ditney Downes on Saturday to urge road safety.

Downes noted that Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) emergency personnel traditionally respond to several vehicle accidents during the Jounen Kweyol weekend.

As a result, the Chief Fire Officer appealed to drivers to limit alcohol consumption, practice defensive driving, adhere to traffic laws, and make it to and from their destination safely.
