One Motorcyclist Dead, Another Injured In Separate Accidents


A motorcyclist succumbed to his injuries after a collision with a vehicle at Rodney Bay on Monday night.

Police have identified the victim as Jim Augustin, 32, of Corinth.

Emergency personnel from the Gros Islet fire station rushed to the scene after learning about the accident at about 10:23 pm and found the unconscious victim on the ground.

The responders transported him to the OKEU Hospital, where he succumbed.

Fire service personnel responded to another incident in the same vicinity involving a collision between a motorcycle and a vehicle in which a forty-four-year-old motorcyclist sustained multiple injuries.

He was stable and alert when the emergency responders transported him to the hospital.

So far for the year, Saint Lucia has experienced a spate of road accidents in which several people have sustained injuries and five have died.

  1. If is not by gun violence is by bike life! What are we not doing to help our young men? Independence week was a week of bike chaos on our roadways, why can’t the transport ministry and traffic police do more? The writings were on the wall!

  2. Those foolish drivers are the ones to pay for their lack of understanding, intelligent and wisdom,by shorten the lives of the innocents….
