Vehicle overturns at Warrens

Police say no injuries were reported. However, traffic was slowed to a crawl this morning after a motor vehicle overturned at Warrens, St Michael.

The accident occurred around 8 A.M. after a female driver lost control of the Daihatsu Terios she was driving, on approach to the Warrens roundabout.

So far the name of the driver has not been released.

    Gusty winds? “Warrens Jinx”? Replace roundabout by four-level flyover? Change candidate-driver’s road-test to one safe, un-eventful passage at Warrens? For the brave and those wid nerves of steel…try this roundabout at night….when de road wet.

    Never mind… dem got plenty new cars in de showrooms!

    I consider myself to be an excellent driver, but I just do not like that Warren’s roundabout! Even though I understand it, it’s still a heap of confusion.(Not insinuating that the roundabout was the cause of the accident)

      I also find that part of this round about has a much tighter turn that the rest of it

    Very Glad to hear no injuries…. but you the drivers involved in this accident caused 100s of your fellow drivers to reach to work etc late. What should have been a half hour drive to work turned into one hour and twenty minutes due to this accident. Smh.

      We just need to be more carefully that’s all I’m saying and to give an idea how accidents impact others. No need for the sarcasm Tyrone.

      I really dont believe that the impact that accidents have on other drivers is really number one on the list of reasons why one should drive carefully & avoid getting in an accident.
      But I guess that is a parent’s biggest nightmare. Getting a phone call & hearing that their daughter had got into an accident & had inconvemienced the other drivers.

    @Hal Austin!!!!That’s my contention also.

    @Tony Webster!!! I am in Barbados EVERY YEAR for sure, sometimes twice a Year, and my friend who ferries me to and from the Airport lives in Warrens Heights, so i usually drive by that Riundabout many times during my stay, that roundabout was fine until they redid it not lng ago, and now it is a NIGHTMARE, i dont drive there anymore unless quite necessary, it is a BIG Disaster waiting to happen, and it could have been avoided if they had accepted the piece of Land offered by Bizzy Williams to make the entrance to His Business safe. they were actually policemen posted at that Roundabout for quite a while after when it was opened as they was a Collision aboue every 5-15 Minutes.

    BTW Gusty winds have nothing to do with it, that can only happen with EXCESSIVE Speed, and lack of proper Driver training.

    The Other Party when they were in Power had Physically started to build those flyovers you are suggesting, millions were spent on it and when the present Government came to Power, they spent Millions tearing it all down.

      Decrepit English system? and what the hell has Independance got to do with this news report? Why try and pass the buck? The road on which this incident took place, is perfectly fine, it’s just the imbecile who was driving so appallingly on it, probably exceeding the speed limit, or far to busy talking on her cell phone, probably both.

    The fly overs is still a great idea, but as I always say this present government is in power to destroy our Barbados.. as for the driving that leaves a lot to be desire , its becoming so funny to see how easy accidents occur in Barbados , especially car turning over , as is the cars in Barbados is made totally different.

    GRAHAME HALL ROUNDABOUT by the VET at night when wet is a “death-trap”. Going through WARRENS ROUNDABOUT is the closest thing to a “trip to hell”. The madness of coming from UWI and going into SUZUKI headquarters area must be corrected. It should be that You must go up the hill to the Cost you Less roundabout and come back down. The little foolishness for the “right hand turn” at the bottom of the hill is rubbish. The person(s) responsible for putting together that area should be “arrested”.

    We talk and talk about our rds which is for sure not good at all and for the people incharge and just don’t take sound advise anything can happen ,to say this the driving skills we once had may be long gone ,getting a licence needs people who not looking to get rich quick to teach new drivers ,they’re short changing the students ,next thing that thing call the cell phone is the back bone to so much accidents recently as last Dec i was on vac while at the stop at country rd i saw a bus driver took his phone out his r/s pocket and was on it with a full load just passed by the depot and no one seems to do nothing about it

    Two of my former English colleagues who were in Barbados last year for the cricket have promised never to drive in Barbados again. Drivers are from Hell, especially on the ABC.
    The problem is that Barbadian drivers think they are the best drivers in the world and just do not care.
    That is the fault of insurance companies and the police. I have called for a dedicated traffic police force, backed up with mobile traffic wardens; and imposing fines on insurance companies every time the police or ambulance service are called out to rod traffic accidents.
    The QEH should also recoup costs by charging insurance companies for treating victims of these road traffic accidents.
    Barbadians talk a lot but do nothing.

    I personally avoid that big Warrens roundabout by Chefette and the gas station like the plague and therefore try and consequently conduct my business away from the Warrens area if possible. The thought of playing an involuntary game of Cony Island bumper cars by driving through that thing does bring on in me a severe case of the heeby-jeebies.
