    Government or the fire department chief
    should look into this and talk to these ambulance drivers .some of them doing it deliberately just putting sirine on and driving like they are on Atlanta speedway racing track and they have no emergency useing the ambulance for their own selfish gain and this goes for the police too some of them useing the uniform for their own selfish gain . Mr chief of police and Mr fire chief open you’ll eyes on these guys. So our pedestrians can have a safe life… Thanks

      The article clearly states that two firemen on board the ambulance were transporting a patient. Hence we can conclude that there was some haste to get the patient to next point of medical service delivery.

        That does not automatically make the ambulance’s operator at fault.

        For all one knows, the bakery driver may have made a tragic misjudgement in how he was yielding to an emergency vehicle, something that I think we have all seen happen.

        Let the accident scene re-construction specialists do their work and we’ll see what they say. Hopefully will provide follow-up coverage on this tragic occurrence.

      Guess you would know. You must be one of those police or fireman who does that!!! Because you don’t see the emergency, does that mean you know the ambulance or police van mission?

      The article is clear that it was an emergency
      And there was a patient on board.

      Firstly, there is too little information in the article to run up a ladder of inference and make completely uninformed judgments or to assign blame to a traffic crash which could have been either contributed to by human or mechanical factors.

      Secondly, you clearly don’t know what you’re talking aboutt with respect to fast driving. Having personally been to NASCAR events both at Atlanta Motorspeedway and Talladega Superspeedway (Alabama), , yes, you are right, but in only one regard — that being said, that they drive around 200 mph in a high-speed precision ballet, sometimes separated by mere inches.

      I’ll ride with a NASCAR driver any day over any other driver, save and except for a few Looshan roadway legends. NASCAR drivers are highly trained, drive vehicles that are well maintained, and lastly, they know the limits of our vehicle, something that all of us, independent of *what* we drive, have a responsibility to be intimately familiar with. Unfortunately, most of us aren’t.

    He should have dies twice!!! Some damn drivers have no respect for emergency vehicles. When one hears the siren, or e is supposed to pull over and stop. Where was the Mangeshkar driver going that he couldn’t give way to the ambulance? We Saint Lucians are to damn lawless

        Guess it’s OK for you to belt out your nonsense and not so for me. What make your nonsense more valid than my nonsense? You hear an emergency vehicle, you pull over and allow it to pass. What is so difficult in that? Had you gone to driving school, you would have known that.

        My sincere condolences.

        Just a point of fact regarding what you said — an emergency vehicle with lights and siren driving in an oncoming lane does not automatically make the ambulance at fault. It’s somewhat more complicated.

        That said, if it was the ambulance’s fault, I’ll bet that they were jumped up on adrenaline as happens.

        And if there was driver fault, it is well within the realm for them to be charged with vehicular manslaughter, spend some time at Bordelais Resort, and never get their license back. Perhaps he’ll also become overcome with guilt and not be able to unsee what happened, it will to add to the post traumatic stress disorder that many first responders eventually suffer from from seeing too much, and he may then get suicidal and show self-destructive behaviours.

        Most unfortunately, all that can never, ever bring back a husband and a father.

    People seriously the circumstances of this accident and details are not fully clear so before rushing to judgment facts are needed. So sorry for the loss of life but there are lessons hear on both sides. Us drivers must yield in both directions and ambulance drivers getting your patients to hospital is your priority. You won’t achieve this if you become a victim too. We learn this in basic first responder training

    yes there was a patient on board but the ambulance came on to him. He was in the middle lane, the ambulance is at fault. And now he’s GONE, my uncle is gone. 😭😭😭😭😭R.I.P UNCLE. And some of you have no respect you don’t know what the hell happened and you’re just talking crap. So I suggest if you don’t have nothing good to say just keep your mouth shut.

    To the officials using sirens, although you may have the right of way you still have to be careful how you drive, the siren only alerts other road users, it doesn’t have a shield to protect you from being in an accident, not saying that was the cause but some of them drive reckless when that siren is on.

    Typical Lucians…always talking without the facts….
    Fact: there was a motor vehicular accident…
    Fact: ppl got injured…ppl who left home to go back
    Fact: one of those ppl involved has passed
    Fact: everyone involved including the passed on has families in pain, one in mourning
    Shouldn’t we be offering our sincere support and condolences to all involved…we should all stop a while and place ourselves in all the other shoes…
