Two People Injured After Vehicles Collide In Castries

spot_img

Emergency personnel from the Gros Islet and Babonneau fire stations rushed to the scene at Choc, Castries, where two vehicles collided on Sunday.

The emergency responders learned of the incident at about 9:58 pm.

On arrival, they transported two male individuals to the hospital, one of them in unstable condition.

Highlighting the current challenges, the Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) recently explained that its resources were ‘overstretched’ due to an upsurge in bushfires, which has been adversely affecting the timely response to some life-threatening emergencies.

Despite road safety appeals from the authorities, Saint Lucia has also experienced a road accident spike this year, resulting in seven fatalities.

  1. When will all u learn that this FOOLISHNESS of appealing and telling ppl take their time is NONSENSE. Where is the Chief Transport Officer. Where is the Road Safety Campaign talked about by Miguel and King. A Bunch of Inept ppl making decisions for us

  2. When will we have proper collision investigators AND proper punishment for reckless drivers and those who are found liable for bodily injury and even death? We have heard many buses run off roads due to driver claiming brake failures…is that really the case or is it a case of reckless driving? It is easy to determine if the brakes failed…can the police even confirm whether the brakes failed or not? Road safety is not being pushed as much as it should considering the frequency of collision and scary number of vehicles on our roads.

  3. As I have said before, we need to know the root of these accidents. The cell phone is a major contributor, alcohol and over speeding. As we all acknowledge our police work 8 to 4.30 , weekend and nights no police.

  4. I don’t believe cell phones & alcohol is the root cause. the root cause of the problem is that some drivers drive as if their skull is empty and believe every inches of the road belongs to them only. If they can somehow learn to have respect for the roads, their lives and others, along cherish the vehicle they have then this nonsense won’t happen. What is happening at present is evidence of our broken society morally, culturally and discipline. When you attach your brain to material things and show off with it, such delinquency will make him/her pay the ultimate price. For the past 4-5 years every single day have accident on our roads. Yes, the law is there but the police are inexperience to apply the necessary charges. Additionally a police report takes about 2-6 months, that in itself is another chaotic situation to deal with.
