Vehicle overturns minutes after tyre-change – police


A Suzuki motor vehicle overturned minutes after doing  a tyre-change at a well-known auto company in the Bois D’Orange area, police sources have said.

Two males were taken to hospital after the vehicle, registration PA7068, overturned in Mongiraud, Gros Islet at about 10:30 a.m.

“The vehicle came from (name withheld) for tyre change and the tyre came off less than a mile away,” the source told St. Lucia News Online.

  1. Wow...That could of easily been a bus load of people with a family member..easy...this was just a reminder.So now I know that if I'm a driver certain knowledge I must have. Always carry out checks before moving off each time.

  2. Too many fly by night, cowboy tire shops in St Lucia now. Everyone is selling used tires. The business needs to be regulated and controlled, staff need to be trained properly and drivers also need to be more vigilant. Thank God there were no fatalities. Anyway, for great quality used tires with 60% tread and more, great service and affordable prices, go to BIG G's Tyre Spot in Marchand Road, near Pool-Bwa's place. BIG G sells the tires and Pool Bwa installs them.

  3. Annonymous - you need to go back to school and check your spelling .... really?...TRYE...lmao

    BUT BACK TO THE REAL ISSUE AT HAND; WE NEED TO ALWAYS BE CAUCIOUS IN EVERYTHING WE DO. IN A CASE LIKE THIS THE GARAGE IS AT FAULT FOR NOT TIGHTENING THE WHEEL PROPERLY. THESE THINGS ALWAYS NEED TO BE DOUBLE-CHECKED. ALSO THE DRIVER HAD TO BE MORE AWARE OF THE WAY HIS VEHICLE FEELS WHEN IT IS DRIVEN. I AM A WOMAN AND EVERYTIME I MOVE OFF MY VEHICEL I WOULD KNOW IF SOMETHING DO NOT FEEL RIGHT. AND A TYRE NOT ROLLING OR FEELING RIGHT IS VERY OBVIOUS AND SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY, NEW OR NOT.

    I am in disbelief that they

    • Another St. Lucian who is wrong but strong. I am happy to educate you.

      Tire and tyre both mean a covering for a wheel, usually made of rubber. Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is preferred in most varieties of English outside North America.

      So in a nutshell tire is North American, and tyre is English/British. St. Lucia mainly uses British English.

    • Before criticising bad spelling is a joke you need to check what it is you are trying to criticise in the first place. Your comment makes no sense, l had to look at it several times to understand what you were trying to say. This site uses American English hence the difference in spelling but really you did not realise this???? Just observing how quick you were. LOL
