  2. I have seen so many instances where ppl in saint Lucia drive with out care and safety and regards to others who use the roads. Overtaking unnecessarily and at blind corners. Blinding highlights and the list goes on. We need a serious and national discussion on road safety and education in Saint Lucia ASAP. So sorry to hear two more lives lost !

      • you have the heart to mention ezra name in your stupid comment if you dont have nothing to say on this painful accident just shut up. you'll always there to think low of people. think of what all three families are going through. you think any parents want to hear this kind of news when it comes to their children. people that saw the accident said that ezra try his best. when he say the biker coming towards him. but with your negative thinking. that's how you thinks of him. lucians will always be judgemental. my hearts goes out to the two families. and may God continue to be with ezra. because I know it's not easy on him now.

  6. I pray that God will comfort both families .It is hard to receive such news of a loved one's sudden death. It is not easy.

    TO BE UNKIND WITH OUR WORDS AT SUCH A TIME AS THIS IS TO NAIL YOUR OWN LIFE IN A CASKET.
    IF YOU CANNOT FIND SOMETHING GOOD TO SAY -SAY NOTHING AT ALL.
