Elderly Couple Among Injured In Union Accident

An elderly couple were among five people injured when two vehicles collided at Union, Castries, law enforcement officials have confirmed.

The two are believed to be in their seventies.

The elderly couple and three others are reported to have sustained multiple injuries when two vehicles travelling in opposite directions had a head-on collision near Caribbean Metals Limited after 3.00 p.m.

A Babonneau police vehicle that happened to be in the area at the time is reported to have escorted a civilian vehicle which took the injured couple to hospital.

A Saint Lucia Fire Service official told St Lucia Times that other private vehicles transported the rest of the injured.

According to the official, although the  Castries Fire station responded with a fire appliance and an ambulance, when they arrived on the scene the victims had already been taken to hospital.

It appears that persons on the scene, aware that firefighters are currently on strike, decided to take matters into their own hands and not wait on the fire service.

  1. It shows. We eh really need all after all. Hope is not one u all that end up needing Firemen to respond to a scene.

  2. Incredible how a vehicle can get out of control and cross into the oposite lane and impact head first.Pretty gross.Did the driver get distracted with his phone or suffer a medical condition? Terrible

  3. Bravo to these concerned passersby. There’s always so many negative things in the news nowadays. It’s nice to know that the spirit of being “my brother’s keeper” is alive and well. Kudos to you all.
