A motorcyclist is dead, and other people ended up in hospital after separate road accidents.

Police said the motorcyclist died on the scene Sunday after his bike collided with a vehicle near the Bonne Terre Gap around 7:00 p.m.

A law enforcement official identified the deceased as ‘Baba Roots’ of Castries.

Police also said they were investigating a serious accident at Grande Riviere, Gros Islet, where a vehicle struck a male individual, pinning him to a wall around the same time as the fatal collision near the Bonne Terre gap.

In addition, emergency personnel reported that shortly after midnight on Sunday, they responded to a car accident report at La Clery, Castries.

A 20-year-old male sustained injuries to the face, and an ambulance transported him to the OKEU Hospital.

Meanwhile, on Saturday the emergency responders transported a 58-year-old man to the OKEU Hospital after his motorcycle collided with a truck at Bexon around 11:35 a.m.

The responders told St Lucia Times the patient was coughing up blood and had sustained facial, chest, and leg trauma.

And earlier on Saturday morning, a 37-year-old female sustained injuries to the head, neck and thigh after a collision between a car and a truck on the Millennium Highway.

  1. WHY? WHY? …. do so many young men FEEL they are invincible? ALL vehicles are “Legal Lethal Weapons” – not to be played with, or taken for granted. If you must ride, learn to do so properly. Young men, none of you are ‘Gods’.

  2. @ Keeping it real: you’re reading my mind; and it was one week before Christmas; are we to expect less? Tet yo wed.

  3. Yes it happen after curfew time. If ppl respect rules, it helps. All of these things that happening can be avoided. Ppl change your habit, stay home during curfew hours. Obey the law, it’s for our good. Too many bike accidents on the road. I think nowadays it’s a bike accident pandemic.

  4. Did anyone else notice this happened way after curfew which is at 5pm on Sundays..
    Lucians like too much feté

  5. @Unbelievable that’s because 1 second after midnight is already the next day,just like your clock and phones set in this format …so yes SLT was right as it was just after midnight saturday making it sunday in the AM …coprandé..SLT post your comment just yo ridicule you…if you were right they’d never post to make dem look like arse’s.
    On another note Bonne Terre gap is the widest part onto the Gros Islet highway and that bike seem like a scooter…now that is unbelievable SMH…somebody wasn’t taking their time and the rider is already at his fault not wearing his helmet…RIP fallen soldier!

  6. That long a$$ trailer on the side of a road as busy as Corinth is a hazard and should be removed ASAP.

  7. Holy moly. Just after midnight on Sunday. It’s still only 10.00 pm Sunday. The St Lucia news can see into the future 😂😂
