The deceased in Thursday’s early morning vehicle accident near the Courts Marisule branch has been identified as petrol station employee, Liselle Charlery.
Charlery was a passenger in a Nissan X-Trail which ran off the road, overturned and burst into flames.
According to reports, she was ejected from the vehicle which then fell on her, trapping her as it burst into flames.
The driver, identified as Richie Richelieu, 32, is said to have been pulled out of the vehicle and is currently in hospital.
Ironically, the accident occurred just a short distance away from where Richelieu lived at East Winds, Marisule.
A relative told St Lucia Times that he and Charlery were on their way from Rodney Bay when the accident occurred.
