UPDATED: Teen recovering after being hit by car in Castries

A teen boy who was struck by a vehicle at Castries waterfront on Tuesday is recovering well.

Reports are that Jovanni Jn Baptiste, 13, was walking behind his mother when the incident occurred.

They were both about to cross the road, close to the Government Buildings.

The teen boy was struck by a red Suzuki Swift, smashing the windscreen. He sustained scrapes to both sides of his face and was bleeding from the mouth, according to relatives.

He was taken to the Victoria Hospital for medical examination and later released.

  1. Nobody can value your life and safety more than you! Everybody needs to do their part! Precaution is for everyone and as for politics. This should not have been mentioned!

  6. some people like to talk non-sence, and like to blame drivers too, as u all can see the car is in the middle of the road, the car didn't knock the child on the side walk, so how the driver can be blamed, where were the child perent or whoever he was there with, not because he got knocked that means the driver have wrong, poeple have to learn don't cross the road on the highway or anywhere without a pidestrian crossing, and they need to put a pidestrian crossing somewhere by lucilec, its time, hope he get well soon

  7. Y'all Lucian's so quick to blame drivers... Ask y'all selves why was the man so arrogant to cross the road where there is no pedestrian crossing with a little boy .... She couldn't walk a little further to nearest pedestrian crossing which was a few meters lower down.. But instead she chose to put herself and her sons life at risk and took the chance of crossing the road.. I am so happy that the little boy is ok but sometimes its not always the driver
