A young male is dead and several other persons injured when a truck and a minibus collided on Bexon Highway, near Cul de Sac, Castries Monday morning (July 27).

An eyewitness told St. Lucia News Online that the male passenger was covered in blood and appeared motionless on the floor of the bus. The condition of the other injured persons are unknown at this time.

The truck (registration number SLG3166) reportedly hit the side of the bus (M895).

The impact of the crash caused the truck to run off the road and plunge front-first into the bushes. The bus also ended up on the side of the road.

No further details available.

  3. Why don't the drivers in St.Lucia exercise caution when driving on ou r roads? It's bad enough we have some idiots who thinks the only way they will to their destination is by speeding and reckless driving, some of them are using phones, drinking and driving you name it some drivers don't give too cents about the lives of the passengers that are in their vehicles. Don't we have speed limits posted on these roads. Maybe we should have speed bump s on that highway. May he rest in peace.

  8. The people drive way too fast on those narrow roads.... they don't care about human life, it about making money. They like to show off as the fastest driver or racing to pick up more people on the roads. No respect for the people on the shuttle. So sad the young man lost his life for no reason...

  9. They need to put legislation in place regarding speed limits on the roads and also have the legislation and equip traffic officers with the equipment to record speed and prosecute people. The fines need to be very high too. So many people die bexon and the tunnel highway. The penalty must suit the crime.

  12. speed is the main contributing factor to such accidents. The drivers always in a hurry because all they care about is making money without any regards to those who are paying them for such services.
