Two persons were rushed to Victoria Hospital Tuesday night (August 12) following a vehicular accident on the Morne, Castries, near Caribelle Batik, sometime between 8: 30 p.m. and 9 p.m.
Reports are that a minibus, registration number M730, with the driver, Victor Joseph of Ciceron, Castries, and a passenger aboard, made contact with a wall then hit a coconut tree which prevented it from rolling further down a hill.
The condition of the injured persons are unknown at this time.
An eyewitness said he saw the vehicle “coming at a speed” and then he heard a screeching sound.
He said the tire “popped off the vehicle, went overboard and the passenger pelt through the window”, breaking the glass.
Another eyewitness said the driver, who was stuck in the vehicle, was heard repeatedly saying “call the ambulance”.
