The driver of the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) bus that crashed on the Bexon Highway Sunday night, Oct. 18, 2015 is doing “much better”, according to a relative.
The driver, Terry James of Millet, who is in his 40s, was discharged from Victoria Hospital this morning, Oct. 19, a family member who preferred anonymity.
The BCF collided with a pickup van near Kamakie’s Auto. St. Lucia News Online (SNO) received reports of the accident around 9:35 p.m.
Following the collision, which sent the bus off-road, a bleeding James, who was the only occupant on board, was placed on the side of the road until an ambulance arrived. He sustained head injuries.
“He is much better now,” the source said, adding that James sustained stitches.
It is not yet known if the occupant/s in the pickup van were injured.
