    Drivers need to have more respect for emergency vehicles. Some refuse to give way when they hear the sirens. Already we do not have enough ambulances now another one lost.

      Yes! But ambulance drivers also need to employ wisdom. Two weeks ago on that same window Morgan bay hill an ambulance was going north and because the road was busy he proceeded to go in the lane that had cars going toward Castries, and had a container truck (thankfully without a container) to go into the ditch. He never gave the driver a chance to get out of the way. It was a most irresponsible piece of driving. In fact the accident that could have happened would have been catastrophic. Again on the same hill? Makes you wonder

        My point exactly- they still need to drive with care particularly as they are transporting a patient

        Exactly!! They are very very reckless and it was only a matter of time that something like this happened. Drivers do respect the sirens as far as I’m concerned. The emergency personnel really need to be trained properly!

    Crazy. The ambulance is not a backhoe not because the sirine is on that they can drive mercilessly remember there’s sick people on boand if their was is not last breath. What is the rush.on the other part where was the bread van going with so much speed untill all that damage had to be done
    People’s lives are important to them stop fulling around. Vehicles don’t go to hospital they go to garage. Oh don’t talk about those motorcycles they worse always in a hurry.
    Please note.. When you don’t handle your tools properly they turned around and damage you.

    Note even if an emergency vehicle has its siren on it still doesn’t have the rite to proceed in the direction of oncoming traffic the vehicles on left lane are supose to create a clear space for them to continue

    Both lanes should create a clear path for any emergency vehicle.

    Making some people wise. It is a must that all motorist make way for a passing ambulance regardless of what side you’re on.

    The minimum decibel level for emergency vehicles of class A and B are 120 and 115 db respectively.

    From my experience and close encounters, many of those emergency vehicles do not even reach close to those standards, especially the jalopy police pickups and ambulances. For some strange but good reason, Firetrucks are loud as hell-which is excellent as they will not just show up in front of you or in your rear view mirror.

    Very sad incident. Hope all goes well for all victims. Additionally, I hope someone investigates the siren levels of this vehicle and many others of the SLFS.

    Enough of the useless back and forth on words and what should have been done….it is evidently clear that an emergency lane is needed in that area……history has shown us the worst, that this particular area of road has to offer and if I’m not mistaken that’s the sight of the corpus Christi road fatalities a few years ago now is it not?

    To the SNO writer … it was an “accident” and not an “incident”. Know the difference between the two words, and how to use them effectively. That is what writers do.

    *Sigh* Drivers fail to realise that the vehicles which they operate are actually “lethal weapons” .
