Emergency responders from the Gros Islet Fire Station transported three people to the OKEU Hospital Friday after two motorcycles collided at Marisule.

According to reports, the collision occurred between a Yamaha MT-09 and a Honda Scooter traveling in opposite directions near the Courts Saint Lucia Marisule Branch.

Two males were on the scooter, and one was riding the MT-09.

The emergency personnel learned of the accident at about 8:10 pm.

At the scene, they discovered that the victims had sustained multiple injuries, including a broken arm, facial injuries, and head trauma.

The Marisule accident occurred hours after a three-vehicle collision at Escap, Micoud claimed the life of one man.

Several other individuals sustained injuries.

Since the year started, Saint Lucia has experienced a spate of road accidents.

The accidents have continued despite road safety appeals from the police and the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS).

Six people have so far died as a result of road accidents in 2024.

  1. I said it. SOON OUR ACCIDENTS WILL INVOLVE MOTORBIKES V MOTOBIKES. Those idiots seem to hv been taught that the white line separating the lanes is for them. They both travelling laong the sam ecenter line in opposite directions. Only a matter of time before one dies in a 2 motorcycle crash

  2. The bus drivers have more common sense than those motor cyclists they believe they’re invincible… when are they going to learn

  3. SLU is supposed to have a motorcycle association. Get them involved in the road safety efforts. This is now bordering on crazy!

  4. and i will say if somebody not seeing something is wrong with this country at this present time, i dont know what else to say again…..

  5. I have been saying for about 3 years now to revoke all motorcycle licenses, clean out the diseases and start from scratch. What is so hard about that? The authorities are silent, dead, a no show, no vision, no plan, no ideas, no zeal, no strategy. My heart goes out to Emergency Response people having to clean up the carnage on our roads.

  6. At some point, the blame shouldn’t be squarely on the drivers when accidents keep occurring in the same place. That bend near courts is a tricky corner. First off no one should be able exit right coming out from Courts parking lot.
    The same with that stretch of road in Bexon where endless accidents keep happening. Fix our roads. Make our roads safe. Mandatory speed limits have to be reinforced. Bikers cannot over take on white lines. They need to stay in line like every other motor vehicle on the road.

  7. Stricter Road laws is much needed. All these road accidents should be given top priority. There should be speed limits on some of these heavy traffic roads. St Lucia government must conduct an inquiry into why the level of Road crash incidents are so high. Is it poor driving skills, lack of awareness on the road. Or just dumb people not understanding a car or motorbike is a dangerous weapon on the roads in the wrong hands, such as if you are intoxicated your judgement will be impaired, you are a menace on the roads. It’s not fair for the law-abiding road users who follow the rules.
    The leading causes of serious injury and death on the roads are caused by speeding, drink and drug driving, not wearing a seat belt and using a mobile phone while driving. These are the leading causes on all roads.
    How many Lucians have broken some of these rules/laws on the roads daily? How many actually practice safe driving with due care and attention. A few good drivers too many bad ones.
    A no nonsense Road Safety Enforcement Approach must be taken by the Road traffic department.
    Something is going wrong, way too many road incidents.
    For a small Island that’s way too high.
    Don’t drink and drive, don’t answer your mobile phone whilst driving and for goodness sake wear your seat belt, it could help to save your life.
    Something that is overlooked is answering your mobile phone while driving….dangerous habit.
    If you have to answer your phone, pull over in a safe zone, switch off and take the call. Driving needs your full attention. How hard is that.
