At least two persons sustained injuries after a passenger bus overturned in the vicinity of Morgan Bay Resort on the Choc Public Road Thursday night.
St. Lucia News Online (SNO) arrived on the scene moments after the accident and observed a young woman laying motionless, but conscious, in the bushes.
Two eyewitnesses told SNO that, at about minutes after 11 p.m., the red passenger bus (HD7944), which was heading to Castries, attempted to overtake a coaster bus, heading in the same direction, when it spun out of control and overturned before it rolled to a standstill on its wheels.
Eyewitnesses say about six people were on the passenger bus. The Coaster bus, which was untouched in the accident, left the scene shortly after.
It took the ambulance about 10-15 minutes to reach the scene. Initially, the SNO news team tried calling 911 for help, but the number rang out without an answer for about 10 minutes.
