The accident involved a white Mercedes Benz, registration #PG7518 that was being driven by Earl St. Edward of Marisule, Gros Islet; a blue truck, registration #TG3736 driven by Edward Gaston of Bois D’Orange, Gros Islet; and a gold-coloured Escudo driven by Dayne Maurille of Bois D’Orange.
Reports are that Gaston, the truck driver, was heading north when he stopped to pick up a civilian. At that time, the Escudo, which was also heading the same direction, made contact with the truck.
The driver of the Escudo stopped a few metres away and went to speak with the truck driver. Shortly after, the Mercedes, also heading north, ran into the back of the truck.
The driver of the Mercedes sustained minor cuts and bruises.
The accident occurred at about 5:15 a.m.
