  2. Every time I saw that van, it would be going at such a high speed. A lot of drivers would always shout profanities at the driver. Now his wreckless driving has caused someone their life.

  4. Well said Ma Foot Malay. Shermicka you are not omnipresent, that means you were not there why make comments? . Go read a book . And if that's not enough for you, you should go take a good long bath in a combination of yam dasheen and cane Kochon water, then use some Vicks and shilling oil to moisturize your skin. Then you can tell the world of your experience. BITCH

  6. Houses are close to the road everywhere. The driver was careless and was driving fast. The guy drives an old van and always drives fast on that road. I live in the area and I can tell you I've seen him traverse the road. Drivers need to be more careful.

      • Mate have an old damn van that probably don't have any insurance and is not well maintained and he drives fast most of the time I see him in Monier which is every day. What you saying badass not making any damn sense because if you driving slow and a tire pops on you you will not have that sort of velocity to cause that kind of collision to uproot the column for the gate which was well implanted. Get lost damnass not badass.
