But we must frist learn to respect each other no matter who u are,too much is bring said and not enough is being done. the reason why we have so much accidents is bcz drivers is not driving carefully.

    • Why don't people understand people have, have to die., whether it's via accidents, shootings, stabbings, old age, etc, etc. We can NOT prevent it. When it is our time, IT IS OUR TIME. We can NOT escape it.

  2. R.I.P man. May your family be comforted in this time of bereavement!

    It's amazing how badly so many
    people Speak. It's evident in the way they write. No kind of punctuation whatsoever. And they're the ones with the most to say. It is depressing!

  3. If you visit all the vehicular accidents reported in the past till now, you will find one common denominator in at least 95% of these accidents.... They are either PJ or PK registration numbers..... WHF is it with those drivers?

  4. This country belongs to us. Not the government! If we come together and try our best to create a country that everyone would come to love to live in im sure great things can happen. Alot of us are able . We have the brains we have the ideas and yet we do or say nothing . All we do is complain and blame. I know it's easier said than done. It may take ten years but people we can try. Start somewhere. Anywhere! Sigh...Start with our families and communities. Everyone get together without any government representatives and discuss what we as people can do to better our way of living. It can be done guys trust me. Alllllllllll we need is unity,underatanding,co operation,hard work nd commitment . All we need is each other. Believe!! I just want everyone to understand how much we can do if we all sat and got together ...please. For us ,for our kids lets try.

  5. To think he left his house for whatever the reason may be and never returned. The only people who can say exactly what happened are the victims of this accident. Should there be blame? I dont know. It has happened and there's no turning back. Does that make it ok?No. let's just pray for the loss of another human being and also for the survivers. Did he intentionally get into this accident to kill David. I dont think so. However it may (not saying he was)have been his carelessness or reckless driving to cause this loss. We cant say for certain. shit happens people. Whether we cause them or not. Let's try not to judge but instead try to speak to each other about doing what's right. Although stuff like this dont have to happen before we unite. Government getting blamed or driver getting blamed wont solve a thing. Lets do our part as individuals and as a country. Goveenment can set laws but we are the ones who make this country and we are the ones to follow and help each other do whats right. If you're the passenger of a vehicle and youre being driven recklessly speak to thay person or get off. R.I.P. Stone.

  10. I have used my head u idiot. if the driver knows its against the law to have people in the tray of his pick-up he should not have them in there its simlpe anyone with half a brain can understand that when u dont exercise goof judgement it put people life in jeperody like this accident last it could be prevented thats the bottom line. Lets stop blaming everyone else its not the responsiblity of the cops/political parties its our responsibility as s nation to respect the traffic laws speed is a prime factor in all the road accidents in st.lucia. thsts s fact. CAUTION SLOW DOWN DRIVE SAFTLY..RIP YOUNG MAN...

  11. The two men were in the tray of the vehicle.condolences to Anthony's family. Will the insurance pay? These vehicles are not insured to transport people in the tray. Our heads are hard.Do not transport people in the Tray of the vehicle. It is sad that the family will get nothing.

  12. I don't have a problem with people riding in the back of pickups, but the drivers need to remember that they are back there and drive accordingly, not like the a$$holes they usually are...

  13. the problem is which head will be used. while I agree that the police should enforce the laws more. we as individuals have a responsibility to protect our life and property, no one can do a better job than us ourselves

    • Yes, have a police officer every 10 feet to ensure the rules of the road are being obeyed. Who said the driver was speeding or driving reckless?

    • my sympathies goes out to fam but tjl u started something let me add to it it s the responsibilty of the police to uphold traffic law and the gov to make the policies that govern them its against the law of st lucia to ride in the box of any truck but no its not upheld is it ur fault or mine so who,s to be blamed is it the driver no it the po po goes back to people obeying laws my country men dont obey laws anyway so the gov have to put measures to make sure it happen, so who.s to be blamed use ur head
