    Nice Clear photo of the bus…clearly stopped “hard-over” on the left side of the road.
    One of these drivers would make a good lecturer on how NOT to drive a vehicle safely. Your guess is as good, as mine. Anudder chunk of our F/X reserves…just got flushed,.. as anudder car is imported. Madness.

      The vehicles these days designed have crush points. It’s better for the vehicle to collapse and absorb the impact than stay solid and u snap ur neck in whiplash on impact.

    Speedy recovery.. The state of that car ,Thank God your alive.. OK now we all sit and jump to conclusions not knowing the story.. everybody don’t was have to be driving fast or on drugs… I pray this will never happen to you again but if your tired it’s ok to pull over on the side of the road and sleep for a few. I know Barbados isn’t a safe place, but knowing you can’t make it home and your tired isn’t safe either.. now after knowing this young man.. I also heard he fell asleep.. so all these people that want to jump to conclusion abouts drugs. Stop it everyone is not the same… Prayers up

    Here we go again, is this something ,which is taught to vehicle drivers, in Barbados ,which is if you have an accident ,it must be a head on collision. Blame it all on the politicians, look at the roads no centre line markings, no real traffic management ,is seen in most of the island..
    Is this car one of the , 30000 in Barbados, which is not insured..

    To anyone ,if you have a vehicle accident , in Barbados , solely or 2 vehicle, …(solely ,the vehicle have no insurance ) the driver not qualified to drive….. what would be the outcome as for instance, if the said car ,( case 1) crashed into some ones house… (case 2) if this said vehicle ,had collided with another vehicle., also parties are injured …

    What if the other vehicle, in ( case 2 ( have insurance ) and in case 2B , having no insurance .. overall what would be ,police cases and liabilities…
