One of two police officers involved in a traffic accident on the Dennery Bypass on July 16, is now in a serious condition at the St. Jude Hospital and in need of blood.
According to information posted on the Royal St. Lucia Police Force’s Facebook page Alva Antoine is to undergo emergency surgery tomorrow Friday July 18, 2014.
An appeal has therefore been launched for members of the public to donate blood to aid in his recovery. The blood type needed is A Positive.
“We are asking persons who would like to assist, to kindly donate some blood to the said hospital on his behalf,” the police said.
Antoine and fellow police officer Caleb Jallim, who were attached to the Dennery Police Station, were heading home shortly after leaving duty when their white Toyota Yaris (registration #PB4945) collided with a light brown convertible BWM (registration #PG3711), driven by Alloysius Blasse of River Doree, Choiseul.
The accident occurred at about 8:20 a.m.
