Bus drivers clash in Castries but bloodshed avoided

The weapons confiscated from the bus drivers.

It was similar to a Gladiator fighting scene in Spartacus today around 2 p.m. when two bus drivers pulled weapons during an altercation on Jn Baptiste Street in Castries.

They were fuming with anger and ready to clash.

One was armed with a machete and the other with a knife.

One bus driver reportedly accused the other of hitting him with his bus, while the other claimed he dent his bus.

However, with the help of several persons, including police officers who were passing by, the situation was prevented from escalating.

The weapons were confiscated. It is not clear if the men were arrested for being armed with dangerous weapons, but thankfully no blood was spilled.

    • Where are you talking from? You lucky to be alive after the slave trade. You are talking about St.Luucians. Why don't people think before they talk.

    • Houston,

      So how you figure a farmer would get a cutlass to his/her land for use if they're not allowed to carry it? It's obvious the driver had it for protection from thieves and whomever else.

  5. People people violence is not the answer. There must be a better way out. Take a walk to defuse the situation. It's just a way of thinking at the heat of the moment. Think Think Think Is It Worth MY Freedom MY Children MY Wife MY Husband Think People think.

  6. To be honest they both should be off the road for a period of six months.The ministry of transportation and the minibus association should used this incident to send a serious message to these bus driver's.

    • Cocoboy,

      And how do you propose the Ministry do this? They might be able to take the route ban, but they can't take the bus.
