Child rushed to hospital after bus overturns

Child rushed to hospital after bus overturns

A child was among two persons who were injured  this evening when a mini bus heading North ran off the Castries Gros Islet Highway and overturned a short distance away from the Saint James’s Club, Morgan Bay resort at Choc.

Both the ten-year old child and the other injured passenger were transported to Victoria Hospital, according to an eyewitness.

It is reported that they were among four persons aboard the vehicle at the time of the incident which occurred at about 6:30 pm.

Information obtained by the Times indicates that the driver of the bus was attempting to get out of the way of an oncoming ambulance when his vehicle veered off the road.

On December 3 last year a Mannee’s Bakery employee, Anthony Cherubin,  died after a collision involving the company’s vehicle that  he was driving and an ambulance.

The collision occurred at about 11:20 a.m. on the Castries Gros Islet Highway, near Saaman’s Park, Choc, Gros Islet.

 

 

He expressed the hope that God will give them the strength to carry on.

    Honestly I am surprised they don’t damaged more vehicles or hurt many more persons. Really, does it make sense to hurt or kill persons on your way to help another person.

    Surprisingly the omni bus I was travelling on geadingvto the city…for whatever reason kept driving although he heard the sirens…the passengers on the bus had to as him to pull up on a side and he was so upset we did….it’s sad emergency vehicles are just not adhered to even with the beacon lights and siren sounds on….drivers take for ever to pull up on a side to allow them to pass through

    Sad but true, you on every radio station now you on social media. Leave the Prime Minister ALONE. To you he is the cause of everything bad that’s happening in St. Lucia. You should stop your nonsense and start praying instead

    Dear Sad-But-True… I will ask our PM to give you a job. I do not want you to continue calling blight on our Fair Helen. Or better yet, may I invite you to church with me? Send me your number please.

    I think whoever Sad-but-true is likely to be needs a novena said on their behalf. Prayers alone isn’t enough for you.
    Find a job, find a life, find something to do to keep those idle fingers of yours busy and leave our PM allllllllloneeee. Thank you.

    Some idiots just can’t let politics go, this show how ignorant some people are. Kenny led st.Lucia for years and some don’t want him blamed for anything but a prime minister who has been there for just a few months is to be blamed for everything, you bias idiots.

    The government need to hold these bus drivers accountable for their reclessness. How can pulling on the side get you in an accident? How fast was that bus driver going? I guess they won’t because government people own so many bussus on the road.

      True!

      These buses always race to the top and squeeze other drivers at the lane merger. Whyyyyyyyyyy? Govt officials….traffic police must be aware but refuse to do squat! Let’s be proactive for once…just spend one hour on a stake out and see for yourselves! Wrecklessness
