Car crashes into electric pole

A St Thomas driver escaped serious injuries when the vehicle he was driving ran off the road along Walkes Spring in the same district this morning, knocking down an electric pole and a bus stop.

“I glad nobody was at that bus stop because it would be them up under the vehicle and not the bus stop. When we come out we ain’t see he [driver] though,” one resident, who requested anonymity, told Barbados TODAY.

Meanwhile, elderly resident Joyce Headley said she was in bed when she heard a loud commotion around 8:45. She said she rushed to her window where she saw the damaged vehicle and a group of onlookers.

Residents said there were no power outages in the area, although workmen had to replace the broken pole.

Police identified the driver as 34-year-old Omar Alleyne, who lives in that area.
