Four Rushed To Hospital After Vieux Fort-Laborie Highway Accident


Emergency personnel from the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) rushed four people to St. Jude Hospital after a head-on collision involving two vehicles on the Vieux Fort-Laborie Highway.

The collision occurred on Saturday afternoon near the Vieux Fort Fire Station.

The station responded with a fire truck and a backup ambulance from Crash Fire Hall.

The responding crews conveyed the four accident victims to the hospital in stable condition.

Their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

Just a day earlier, on Friday, emergency personnel transported four people to the hospital after a pickup truck and a minibus collided at La Ressource, Vieux Fort.

Those victims also did not appear to have sustained life-threatening injuries.

So far for the year, Saint Lucia has recorded one road fatality, a driver who succumbed after three vehicles collided along the Praslin Highway.

  1. We needed to strengthen our blind areas more with security cameras, the ones that can print out receipt remotely and take picture of the number plates, therefore police don’t have to be present. What they can do is used the ticket as evidence and track the vehicle down. Neglectful driving needs to be penalized more for there life threatening habits and should be tried in the court of law for “attempt manslaughter or manslaughter” if death occurred. Apply the law police, i firmly believe they are there!
