A coconut tree stopped the minibus from rolling further downhill. Two persons were injured.
A coconut tree stopped the minibus from rolling further downhill. Two persons were injured.

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”.

  3. As usual, driver is driving too fast for the freaking conditions. There are repercussions when one does dangerous sh*t. Unfortunately people, the driver is paying his dues. He could have taken out innocent people along the roadside. His stupid ass banged on a tree instead. Cliff is concerned about the health of the in innocent tree. What's wrong with that? Driver is lucky he did not receive Darwin's Award. The Darwin Awards salute the improvement of the human genome by honoring those who stupidly remove themselves from it.

  4. I pray to god everytime I get on a minibus here most drivers are after a quick turnaround so they can make more cash and drive old squeeky buses with bald tires ( well seems that way on my route), too fast, I am amazed there are not more accidents. I am a former professional driver and I can tell you some of these guys need to re take their tests and have some training.
    I am pleased in this instance that no one was seriously hurt I am glad the coconut tree saved them.

  6. So many times I've taken that journey and I always worry about the speed . These drivers are taking the publics life into their own hands .
    It may be their vehicles making them think they can drive how they like but it's not their lives.
    Drivers please :
    Kill your speed & drive safely
    Think of the people not of ypurselves

  8. Exactly, why get on Cliff's case, he is more concerned about the coconut tree. Everybody else should focus on what they're concerned about -the two people involved in the accident. I too wish them well.
