Deceased accident victim identified

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.

      Really. Some of the comments i have seen should never be permitted in the first place. Freedom of speech you say – it does not translate to saying anything you want. If you want to be free to say what you desire – Then create you own message board. Will you go down to the city center and spew out obscurities. Idiot.

        freedom of speech does mean that you can say what you want…. the thing is what ppl fail to realize is that yes you can say what you want but you are not exempted from consequences of your actions…. also i am not the jackass at teh top.. i too am shocked at their stupidity.

      Most people have a huge misconception about Freedom of Speech. Freedom of Speech has its limits. Freedom of Speech gives you the right to say whatever the LAWS permit. People go to prison or are fined by a court of law for libelous statements. Some of the comments are vile, disgusting, distasteful, aggravating and absurd. These inane statements reflect the overly dark minds of soulless worthless vagabonds. Heart-felt sympathy to the relatives and friends of the deceased.

        “vile, disgusting, distasteful, aggravating and absurd” yet you call people soulless and worthless vagabonds. Talk about the kettle to the pot.

        Anything can be vile subject to who is on the receiving end. Someone may find the colour red hideous and the mere thought of the word would drive him crazy. Should we expunge the word red from the dictionary? No you cannot. Free speech should be free speech. I may find obscenities distasteful another may find it expressive. You cannot accept one without the other. It no longer is free speech.

        Your views about Freedom of Speech are very much misconstrued. Freedom of Speech has its limits. Freedom of Speech does not include the right to incite violence, distribute obscene materials (child pornography), make libelous statements against an innocent person, etcetera. Society would be uninhabitable if we don’t place boundaries on humankind . I find your argument about the color red to be bizarre and inconsequential at best. If no one condemns the accusatory insinuations, and the insensitive comments,. and allow these to become the norm, our society would quickly sink to the abyss. Some of the comments are just mind boggling and are made by people who have had a surgical operation to remove their conscience.

        Hurt, surprise, disappointment, can cause people to say and do a lot of inappropriate things. Watch the news, it’s filled with examples of people acting out on strong emotion. That is what ‘torn apart’ might be feeling. Those who feel it know it.

        I don’t know which you are feeling but your comment is 100% inappropriate and unnecessary.

      Anyways your story sounds more plausible that the story of the girl being flung out of the vehicle then being crushed.

      The article and your testimony doesn’t seem to add up…. St. Lucia Times I suggest a tad bit more investigation… Was she in the vehicles or not? @ torn apart I’m sorry you have to ask such questions in this type of forum however if a relationship, relation raft or canoe has to come to such questions do yourself a favour sail away…. To the family of Ms Charley my heart goes out you…may you find strength in these trying times…. And to everyone commenting let us bear in mind that there are people hurting so be nice.

        Who cares if she was walking or in the car , she was a mother and some one daughter. All the negative comments are people that are insensitive to what this lady family is going through.get a life and pray that is not your family who is grieving.

      ‘According to reports, she was ejected from the vehicle which then fell on her, trapping her as it burst into flames.’ (SNO)
      “while the young lady was running across the road he tried his best to swing on the other side.” (Lucians)

      I prefer the second explanation.

      At 3 am the road is basically empty, soi how could someone not safely cross the road. She didnt hear the only car coming, and there was another car coming too?? really. so u mean there were two cars coming and she decided to cross the road. then that girl was off. Or you plain lying. What was she doing on the road alone at that time??She came from shopping at courts? and to me there arent residential houses across from courts. HAHA. good one but try again

    How was she ejected from the vehicle? Does that mean she was not wearing a seatbelt? If she was not wearing a seatbelt then the aspect of criminal negligence should be considered by the investigators.

    I shall not generalize. I do not want to appear condescending. A percentage of us should make better use of the internet. Before we press submit, read the comment aloud. Really, is the vulgarity necessary? Shush not in style anymore?
    I came here to find out about this because I heard about it while travelling today. It sounded like a movie. Oh my. Even with an lol a few comments here should not be posted. Really? In this heat, at 2:00 am. I am showering again. The person was at his or her home with his or her bf. Focus on the message. In fact, it does show that we still live in a relatively safe country if you can go out at 3:00 a.m.

    Then again, school is not open yet. People can choose angles of the article to examine and comment on. We all will not comment on the same thing – that’s why it’s a comment and discuss forum.

    Many of us might not understand. You need to have a relationship with God and read your bible to know what’s happening in this last days on earth. This accident was a sacrifice by a lodge man. Time that happened, fornication even if she wasn’t with her husband, the way that happen, driver escaped.
