WATCH: Container Truck Overturns At The Barre De L’Isle

spot_img

Dennery Fire Station emergency personnel rushed to the Barre de L’Isle, where a container truck overturned on Saturday.

The emergency responders learned of the incident at about 7:22 pm.

On arrival, they found that a truck hauling a 20-foot container had rolled over on its right side across the road.

The ambulance crew assessed the vehicle’s sole occupant, who declined emergency transportation to a medical facility.

Heavy-duty equipment later moved the overturned container truck, and a Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) appliance flushed the area.

Saturday’s Barre de L’Isle incident was the latest in a spate of road accidents, despite road safety appeals from the fire service, the police, and the National Council on Public Transportation (NCOPT).

Between Wednesday and Thursday last week, thirty-five people sustained injuries as a result of three multiple-casualty road incidents at Goodlands, Castries, and Grace and Aupicon in Vieux Fort.

Eleven students aboard a minibus that ran off the road at Grace were among the injured.

The minibus was transporting the students to the Anse Ger Secondary School when the brakes allegedly failed.
