Male Rushed To Hospital After Fiery Vehicle Crash


On Monday, Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) personnel rushed a male individual in stable condition to the hospital after a fiery crash at Goodlands, Castries.

Emergency responders at the SLFS Headquarters in Castries learned of the incident at about 12:50 pm and headed to the scene with a fire truck and an ambulance.

On arrival, they discovered that a Lexus and a Subaru were involved in a head-on collision near Eudovic’s Art studio.

As a result of the collision, the driver of the Subaru sustained injuries, and the his vehicle burst into flames.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze, but not before it had destroyed the vehicle.

The driver,  who was the sole Subaru occupant and the only person responders transported to the hospital, complained of abdominal and chest pains.

The other vehicle involved in the collision was heading to the Hewanorra International Airport with three non-nationals on board.

It was the latest in a surge of road incidents so far this year, despite road safety appeals from the authorities.

Since the start of the year, seven people have died in road accidents.

  1. It is strange a subaru burst into flames, what happen to sensor which all subaru have called knock sensor? Maybe the owner ate it out with pure ignorance. Altering and modifying what the manufacture does is a crime for your wellbeing. Example the Boeing 737max which was a manufacturer defects, that company commit such crime the FAA and NTSB choose to do what? To protect the Manufacturer because Airbus and other Air Craft Manufacturer would have dominated the market. Boeing donated millions to politicians. If it was a Caribbean Manufacturer… it would have been black listed instantly.

  2. To black Subaru wagon driver who speedily overtook me just to stop infront of me to go in the gap opposite Sean’s Garage…..jah knows how close you were from being a stat cause i had tender, precious people on board……..I was reading this article thinking it was you! Yol go cool out you know!

  3. Anonymous, better you had just kept your comment to yourself…,i will just assume youre not a driver or dont know anything about cars, that was a serious collision. Fuel lines could have been pinched…exhaust manifold are at high temperatures…thats an ignition….oil falls on said exhaust manifold…thats under ignition…
