Traffic Alert: High speed chase ends with accidents, injuries

Traffic along the Barrow stretch of the ABC Highway between the Clyde walcott roundabout and the Everton Weekes roundabout had to be diverted today after a series of road traffic accidents which occurred earlier in the morning.

A notice from the Royal Barbados Police Force said in part that officers “have had to implement traffic management measures and some diversion of traffic in this area. . .we are asking motorists to avoid the area and that some congestion can be anticipated.”

Loop News understands that there are a number of reported accidents and reports of some injuries as a result of an individual trying to evade police.

Meanwhile, Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector Rodney Inniss said the individual has been caught and arrested and is in police custody.

Police are carrying out investigations into the road traffic accidents.
