Four People Injured After Vehicle Collision In Vieux Fort

spot_img

On Friday, two vehicles collided at La Ressource, Vieux Fort, resulting in injuries to four people.

However, the injuries appeared to be minor.

The Vieux Fort fire station responded around 2:45 pm after receiving the accident report regarding the collision between a minibus and a pickup truck.

The emergency responders transported the injured individuals to the hospital.

A spate of road accidents last year prompted appeals from the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) for road users to exercise caution.

So far, for 2024, the Island has recorded one road fatality.

Police identified the deceased as Clement Casimir, a sixty-one-year-old resident of Grande Riviere, Gros-Islet.

According to the police, they learned on January 3, 2024, that Casimir had passed away.

He was one of the drivers involved in a three-vehicle collision at about 2:40 pm on the Praslin Highway on New Year’s Day.

  1. There was a time when we hardly heard of a road accident in Saint Lucia unfortunately now it’s becoming part of our daily life.

  2. It’s not rocket science, but so many accidents at intersections, means obviously drivers are being taught wrongly. But when u hv an entire Transport department with none absolutely zero with transport or road safety training then there will be no shift to investigate and correct the wrongs. Expect another and plenty more this year 2024.

  3. So many avoidable collision….if only people drove more defensively! I think we can do better with signage…even roadworks endorsed by the Ministry of Infrastructure have careless signage and extremely extremely poor traffic management as if these people don’t drive themselves.

  4. We have more vehicles … Along the same out dated road network. What do you think will happen… ?
    Where are the traffic lights … And the traffic cameras…. and the tickets in the mail…. Or email…. ? People drive like there’s no consequences for their bad driving.

    I bet if there was a place people could send videos of reckless driving so that the insurance companies can raise the offenders premium… The bad driving would decrease

  5. I’ll say take the pickup van from the driver. Its time now who are in default take away their vehicle for a period of 1 year and degrade their license to provisional. The degree of stupidity on our cabaway roads should not cause some many daily accidents. Lucians are reckless at home and so they are in everything they do.
