A man was crushed by a trailer truck on New Dock Road, Vieux Fort this morning, Police Press Officer Aniel Innocent has said.
The pedestrian is so far known as ‘Trini’.
The accident occurred about 9:30 a.m. near the speed bumps. The truck, registration number PK2312, was being driven by Elias Giddeon of Dennery, Innocent said.
A source said the truck driver did not stop initially because he was not aware what had happened.
An eyewitness told St. Lucia News Online that the pedestrian sustained severe head injuries.
“His head and face were crushed. His eyes were dislodged,” the eyewitness said.
