Driver, Two Passengers Injured In Vehicle Crash


A driver and two passengers sustained injuries on Friday when a vehicle transporting fish ran off the road at Choc and overturned, spilling the fish onto the ground.

According to reports, the vehicle brakes failed, and the driver desperately attempted to avoid colliding with other motorists as he descended the Choc Hill.

The vehicle eventually ran off the road and overturned, resulting in injuries to its three occupants, including a female.

Gros Islet fire station personnel rushed to the scene after learning of the accident at about 4:52 pm.

However, the vehicle’s occupants, although complaining of ‘slight pain,’ declined emergency transportation to a medical facility.

  1. Is this nation under a curse, or what?!!! Every day the nation is flooded with tragic news –murders, terrible vehicular accidents, decomposing bodies, drownings, robberies, sexual assaults, gang warfare, school violence, domestic violence, family turmoil, hatred, out-of-control anger, rage, deception, back-biting, back-stabbings, chronic illnesses such as COPD alongside├▒ a host of respiratory viruses, cancers, hypertension, strokes, heart disease, etc., etc., etc. And still many Lucians refuse to repent of disobeying the commands of the all-knowing, all-loving God Almighty, who says to all of us, “Thou shall not kill; Thou shall not commit adultery; Thou shall not steal; Thou shalt not lie (“bear false witness”); Thou shall not covet.” Yup. Sure seems Fair Helen is under a curse –and will continue to be under this curse until the people’s heart are turned to God! After all, according to Scripture, whereas “righteousness exalts a nation, sin is a reproach to any people”! And don’t give me attitude for proclaiming this truth –I’m only a messenger of the Word!

  2. I’m glad that a head on collision was averted. Quick thinking by the driver is commendable.
    My concern is the roadworthyness of some of these vehicles used for fish vending. Are some of them even inspected and insured?

    I understand the value of that trade because I look forward to buying fish outside my door from an ice chest rather than from a stall or a cart baking in the sun on the sidewalk.
    Maybe those fisherfolk can go to the Youth Economy Agency or the Micro business agency for grants and loans to fund their operations. Access to a good vehicle and ice coolers could result in a viable business for young people. It could change a young person’s life.

  3. This is a prime example of how desperate our survival becomes when politicians play with us like Christmas lights, white it lights that means it good, when it out it means, you are left to find for yourself.
    If the Ministry for Commerce was of any good and Ministry of Agriculture. The fishery complex won’t become a white elephant. We have a set of mules leading this island, Intelligent in class but extremely poor decision when walking across a race track.
