The Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) has reported that there were no major injuries in Thursday night’s collision between a minibus and a car at Bexon.

Deputy Fire Chief, George Victorin, told St Lucia Times that the fire service received a call in relation to the accident about 8:19 p.m.

“When we arrived on the scene, we found that a minibus had collided head on with a motor car,” Victorin explained.

He said the driver of the car was trapped in his vehicle and had to be extricated using the ‘jaws of life’.

According to Victorin, the minibus was carrying 14 passengers at the time of the accident, while there were about four occupants in the car.

He disclosed that some of the injured were transported to hospital by private means while about four, including the driver of the car, were transported via ambulance.

“However, the injuries were not serious,” the Deputy Fire Chief revealed.

Victorin observed that Saint Lucia has seen an influx of motor vehicles.

“Almost every week we realise that there is a new shipment coming in and the roads are much busier now,” he told St Lucia Times.

He said the fire service wants to encourage motorists and pedestrians to be very careful when using the roadways and not take risks.
