    Shud be a law against utility-poles striking cars. I forgive this one, however, as it demonstrated its skill….in hitting the car exactly in the centre!
    Who said that “I’ts a shame that car-insurance rates just keep going-up”?

    No No No!!! Something is seriously wrong!.. I think God is trying to tell Barbados something!.. All of a sudden bajans who were once God fearing, have turned their backs on God. I’ve been noticing too many atheistic views here of late.. I don’t care who cuss me and call me a fool. BAJANS NEED TO GET BACK TO GOD!! HEAR OH BARBADOS THE LORD YOUR GOD IS THE ONE AND ONLY GOD!!… Stop worshiping foolishness and embracing all sorts of foreign North American and European ideals…Barbados has always been a blessed nation. God bless Barbados.

      It’s ok to be confused… There isn’t much I or anyone for that matter can do about that…Not everyone will understand the message…some will and others won’t…we can only reach our own realisation in our own time..

    Loosing control, what was she doing at the time of this accident, on her mobile I suppose, I would like to know if this person ,is a qualified driver.

    Would someone help, are accidents investigated, in Barbados as to what cause the accident and as in two vehicles collision , who caused the accident. are people charge with dangerous driving and in some cases ban from driving for periods.
    Are drivers sued , for injuries by anyone in they vehicles.

    It’s a good thing the pole was in the way otherwise, the vehicle could end up in a house. It’s possible: 1. Lack of due care and attention. 2. Vehicle overdue for a service. 3. Use of mobile phone.

    That’s why it’s called an “accident” and it can happen to anyone. Did you ever think the woman could have had a medical issue like a blackout. Don’t be too swift to judge.

    along that stretch of road is very narrow, one actually have to stop to give way for vehicle going in opposite direction maybe government should look at widening Villa Road

    No police radar, no drivers license demerits, no breathalyzer tests when accidents occur, no stiff fines and penalties, it’s to be expected people won’t care and will do as they please until there are laws in place for consequences.

    That is always the issue with black people, never wanting to take responsibility for the failures. its , satin , its the Europeans , its everyone else and everything else, its bajans who are dying daily, next thing you would be hearing from bajans , its the vehicle fault. it turn left instead of right.
    The trouble ,you bajans, are not praying hard enough and so deciteful, God must do everything but what are you yourselves doing.
    Man /women be true to thyselves,most of you are fakes.thats why our island is in the mess its in, leave it to god. there is more that chance of seeing ISIL here.
