Five occupants of an SUV escaped injuries when a rock was thrown into their moving vehicle while driving on the highway through Marisule, Gros Islet on Sunday.
The incident occurred around 1:30 a.m., just after the Courts building, as the vehicle was heading towards Castries, one of the occupants, who preferred anonymity, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO).
“… The rock broke into pieces, hitting everyone in the vehicle. The good thing is we didn’t get hurt, thank God,” the source said.
They were unable to see who threw the rock.
Out of caution, the driver did not stop immediately, fearing that it may be a set up for a robbery.
“We know how the times are, people are wicked… so we drove by Glace to examine the vehicle.”
No major damage was done to the vehicle, but the occupants – three males and two females – were left shocked and puzzled.
The incident was not reported to the police but the passengers felt it was important to inform the public.
“We were not expecting that at all, took us by surprise…. But in case that’s a habit they wanna take, I think you should put a warning out there for motorists coming from the north because that may be their means of getting person’s to stop and attack and rob them,” said the source.
