Five vehicles involved in two accidents with injuries

This morning saw members of the Royal Barbados Police Force and emergency medical responders on the scene of two accidents.

There was an early morning collision with minor injuries at Gall Hill, St. John. Two cars were involved.

Then there was a three-vehicle accident along Mapp Hill and Mount Friendship. This left the road impassable.

The Royal Barbados Police Force, Traffic Division wants drivers to drive more due care and caution. Barbados has already recorded at least eight road fatalities for the year 2018 so far.

Barbados' latest road fatalities occurred last week over the Easter weekend. The first road accident victim on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018, was 41-year-old Carson Atkins, of Foster Hall, St. John. Atkins was the front seat passenger of a motorcar, and he died at the scene.

Then hours later, Anthony Junior Stuart was recorded as the second person to lose his life on our roads on said Easter Sunday. The 28-year-old was riding a motorcycle along 1st Avenue Rockley, Christ Church, when he collided with a utility pole and died on the spot.
