A motorcyclist sustained an arm fracture and other injuries after colliding with a cow at Choc, Castries, on Thursday.
Emergency personnel from the Babonneau Fire Station responded after learning of the incident at about 6:32 pm.
Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) spokeswoman Stacy Joseph told St. Lucia Times that the responders found the motorcycle rider on the ground.
The animal also sustained injuries.
Joseph said the emergency crew administered first aid, immobilised the patient, and transported him to the OKEU Hospital for additional medical attention.
“The incident was a stark reminder of the dangers of having cattle loose on the roads and serves as a warning to all road users to exercise caution and be aware of their surroundings at all times,” she stated.
Emergency personnel also responded to another accident at Choc on Thursday.
According to the report they received, a vehicle had swerved off the road.
The driver, who was the only person in the car, suffered some facial injuries as a result of the accident.
The SLFS spokeswoman said emergency personnel attended to his wounds and transported him to the OKEU Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.
