Police Make Road Safety Appeal After Fatal Accident


Saint Lucia police have issued an appeal to road users to exercise caution following an accident on Monday that claimed the life of a motorcyclist.

Police have identified the deceased as Corinth resident Jim Augustin.

The thirty-three-year-old succumbed to his injuries at the OKEU Hospital.

According to the police, at about 11:19 p.m., the Traffic Department received a report of a fatal motorcycle accident along the Sir Julian R. Hunte Highway in Gros-Islet.

The Officers responded, and preliminary investigations revealed that a motorcycle had collided with a motor car.

A medical practitioner at the OKEU Hospital later pronounced the motorcyclist, Jim Augustin, dead.

A police release said there would be a post-mortem examination later.

“The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force advises motorists to exercise caution while driving and to comply with the laws that regulate vehicle operations and road usage,” the release stated.

Road accidents have claimed the lives of five people in Saint Lucia so far in 2024.

  1. The police need to get speed guns and start charging peopleā€¦.. The speed limit is 40 MPH

  2. It’s so unfortunate that the public and people in this forum have all the soltuions but neither police nor the transport authorities take note! It’s just a matter of time till a baby/ toddler end up in a windscreen..cause parents like to hold them in their arms while in the front seat! I know police does see them too!

  3. Of all cover pictures to use for this article is a policeman with handcuffs in hand approaching a driver? This definably doesn’t support the article or the message being given and can even be extended to portray a negative subliminal message. SMH.

  4. Doesn’t SLU have a “Motorcycle” Club or Association?
    If so, they are VERY DORMANT!!
    The only time they seem to appear is when there is a holiday where they invite motorcycle “teams” from St Vincent and Martinique to participate in their rallies and such.
    This is truly a shame, when they should be VERY visible and vociferous in appealing to unscrupulous motorcyclists who ride the streets and roads with impunity and with a sense of invincibility.
    @George … well said!
