A security guard at St Jude Hospital in Vieux Fort has died following an accident near his work place Wednesday morning  law enforcement officials say.

The officials have identified the deceased as Agapitus Louis, 61,  of Micoud.

They say he was hit by a vehicle as he was crossing the highway.

In March last year a 70 year old female from the same community of Micoud died shortly after she was struck by a vehicle in the same general area where Wednesday’s fatal accident occurred.

Her death led to calls for speed bumps or some other traffic regulating device to be installed to protect people crossing the highway to get to St Jude Hospital.

Reliable sources told St Lucia Times that after the death of the 70 year old, St Jude Hospital dispatched  a document dated April 1, 2019,  to the Ministry of Infrastructure suggesting the traffic regulating initiatives.

However the sources lamented that the request had fallen on deaf ears.
