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.
