WATCH: SLFS Transports Five To Hospital After Bexon Crash

spot_img

Emergency responders from the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) rushed five people to the OKEU Hospital Monday after two vehicles collided at Bexon, Castries.

SLFS Spokeswoman Stacy Joseph disclosed that the fire service headquarters in Castries learned of the incident at about 7:10 am.

Joseph explained that the vehicle collision involved eight individuals.

She said the five patients the emergency responders transported to the hospital sustained various injuries.

“The minibus driver was reportedly taken to the medical facility
by private means before the arrival of emergency personnel. Two other
individuals claimed to be uninjured and refused medical attention,” the SLFS spokeswoman stated.

Just last week, the Ministry of Health expressed concern that road accidents and physical assaults were among the factors taking a toll on Saint Lucian men.

As a result, the Ministry declared that the men are losing more of their potential benefit to society.

The year began on a tragic note with a three-vehicle collision along the Praslin Highway on New Year’s Day.

Two days later, a sixty-one-year-old driver who was involved in the accident passed away.

Between January and October 2023, the trauma resulting from incidents, including physical assaults and road accidents, resulted in 1,906 ambulance responses.

  1. As i said there will be more accidents this year. When your Transport ministry is run by and staffed with absolutely no one NOT ONE person trained in Road Safety or Transport it is inevitable that. When your Driving school is run by ppl like Jean and the traffic Dept is run by no one not one person skilled in Road Safety U STICK.

  2. No, not Bexon again; this placed must be cursed; – @ SMBH – what do you expect from a fat one posing as a Minister and the ones around him say, what you can do, I can do better.
    What prevents him from making frequent visits to these troubled spots, along with a Road/Highway Engineer to advise him. If Minister wont move, can staff ever do better?

  3. Everytime there is an accident on the Bx highway it makes me furious. As a pedestrian and driver, this road has a speed limit which the minority respect. The grass is barely cut on the sode of the road, persons place their derelict vehicles on the side of the road leaving less space for persons to walk. It’s become scary… Just last week a driver almost run me over while waiting to cross on the side. It proves to me that the road isn’t safe for our kids anymore. Believe it or not it is also a community (meaning person reside there). So, it will be greatly appreciated if the road signs are respected (I.e. Approaching juctions, school zone, speed limit). We are fed up being witnesses to unnecessary deaths and injuries. Drive safely people!!!!
