      And you don’t think that it is important to discover the reason why this accident has occured, in order to develop best preventive ways of avoid it again? Are you aware that there is a thing called Defence Driving which teaches one to avoid things like this?

      Look some of you have nothing better to do seriously you don’t stpzzz its always the negative first spewing from some of you. Pray that the people are OK and no one died 12 people seriously hurt, and wanna trying to be police that’s why they have the police on the scene to do that not you all. Its annoying man. Those people were probably going home from work and didn’t make it but you all want to be detective’s stpzzzzz.

      Listen! It is ok to be humour at times, but on a more serious note: I asked the question regarding the statistical collection of the traffic accidents in Barbados to get a handle on this problem. Statistics helps in determining the causes of the traftic accidents and preventive methods employed to address the problem. For example: we know from statistical analysis in America that traffic accidents amongst young people in America are caused by two fundamental reasons: driver detraction and high rates of speed.

        Why you fretting so?

        If you are so concerned about the hurt then finding out why there was an accident should be paramount to preventing this occurrence in the future, have you a brain?

    Just praying that injuries were not serious and that those affected will be better in the shortest time. Giving God thanks for saving lives. The scene was a scary one as I watched from my patio.
