A 90-year-old man reportedly suffered broken legs in a two-vehicle smash up on the Adams section of the ABC Highway this afternoon.

Police say Ergerton Hunte of Kendal Hill, Christ Church was trapped in his vehicle and later freed with the assistance of officers from the Barbados Fire Service.

One of the vehicles involved in this afternoon’s accident.

The other vehicle was driven by 43-year-old Michelle Warner of Emerald Park West, St Phillip.  There were three female passengers in the vehicle.  Warner and her passengers complained of injuries which were said to be non-life-threatening.


All five individuals were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance.

Meanwhile, a St John man is currently in serious condition at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital after suffering head and chest injuries from an accident on Mason Hall Street yesterday.

Police say 22-year-old Chavon Ollivierre of Venture, St John was riding a motorcycle along Mason Hall Street at about 3:15 p.m. when he apparently lost control and struck a fence.

Ollivierre underwent surgery at the QEH.

    Nothing wrong with saying driving the motorcycle…that’s the term used in legalese. People drive a carriage where this is a horse…no engine. That’s the beauty of language.
