The minibus driver, Winston Williams, told St Lucia Times that he was driving up the hill when the wall collapsed and hit his vehicle.

“As you can see, it mash up my van and it mash up a car,” Williams said.

“I had a pregnant lady on board – some of them got hurt some were shaking. It dent my roof and mash up the side of my bus,” he explained.

Williams told St Lucia Times that there had been numerous complaints about the wall, which he said had developed some big cracks.

He disclosed that during the week, officials from the Ministry of Infrastructure had inspected the wall and were obviously looking to do something about the accident that was waiting to happen.

But the bus driver observed that the heavy rain Friday caused the wall to collapse.

He said had school children been passing there at the time, they would have been seriously injured.

The incident occurred about noon.
