Minibus overturns in St George

At this hour there are reports of a minibus overturning near the St George Parish Church.

Police and ambulance personnel are on the scene.

However, Police Public Relations Officer Assistant Superintendent of Police David Welch told Barbados TODAY no injuries were reported as the driver, who was the lone passenger at the time, apparently escaped unscathed.

Investigations are continuing.

      So true. When a nation turns from God, it exposes itself from being protected fromed the plots and devices of the enemy, and Bdos has turned away from God and are going after “things” God is not please and will pour out his wrath upon Bdos, as he is doing in many other nations. Bdos is no different as God is not partial.

      God is a God of love and he is ever faithful and long-suffering, but he is also a God of wrath. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah.

    @jrsmith!!!! Why do people keep referring to these incidents as ACCIDENTS which they are NOT, ACCIDENTS are things that are UNAVOIDABLE, Most if not all of these are Operator mess ups, in this case with Water on the Road “WOW” Skating rink with the Bald Tires on these Vehicles, you are lucky this does not happen every Hour on the Hour.
    You ask “what’s goiing on??” what’s going on is we NEED a Protocol set for the Road worthyness/certification of Vehicles that Transport people, and which would be extended to all vehicles on the Roads in Barbados eventually.
    I see Tires(Tyres) on Vehicles in Barbados that wont even make it to the Dump here in Ontario, Balder that a baby’s Backside. most of those Vehicles are NOT fit to be on the Road.

    On the other hand, why did Police Public Relations Officer Assistant Superintendent of Police David Welch, not ascertain the proper relevant information BEFORE making a statement on the Incident? he gave incomplete/wrong information, and then had to come back and give quite different information on the Same incident, not very professional.

    C’est la Barbade

    It looks as though our drivers are losing concentration on the roads and not being focus. Too many accidents and all ages are involved.

    You should slow to a crawl when its wet because stopping might be challenged; you SHOULD approach a major stop by creeping up to the white line not rushing to the line and push half of the vehicle out in the road; you do not turn across uncoming traffic with little space available- you should wait until the vehicle clears and then make your turn; you should not accelerate if someone is overtaking you – its not a race–All these and more foolish things the ignorant drivers on the roads in Barbados continue to engage in daily. Makes no sense talking -these ignorant persons want punishing hard . The seat belt law is a good example of how to deal with incalcitrance
