Three hurt in serious accidents

Three people were injured in two serious accidents – one involving a Transport Board bus – that occurred within half hour of each other in neighbouring parishes.

The first occurred at Fortesque Road, St. Philip around 6:45 am, involving a Transport Board bus driven by 45-year-old Richard Broomes and bicyclist Nigel Harewood, 39, of College Savannah, St. John.

Harewood complained of lacerations to his forehead and left shoulder and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) for treatment.

The second collision, which occurred about 7:15 am on Charnocks Main Road, Christ Church, involved two cars.

Edmund Bushell, 45, of Windward Gardens, St. Philip, and Tremella Maynard, 36, of Pegwell Gardens, Christ Church had to receive medical attention.

Bushell received lacerations to the right side of his head and was transported to the QEH by an ambulance, while Maynard who complained of pains about her body sought private medical treatment.

    Road Safety seems to have gone through the eddoes. I find that especially at nights, there are a lot of instances where oncoming traffic, suddenly pull towards the centre of the road and into the path of vehicles coming from the opposite direction. In all cases ,involved, this was done because the other driver,apparently, did not see, until the last moment, the bicyclist in front of him ,with no lights,and in many cases dressed in dark clothing.
    Barbados has become the only place where bicyclists , at all times have been given priority on the highway, including overruling Traffic Lights, pedestrian side walks, and Major Stops.

    Get the policemen with camera on the streets to monitor and catch these people speeding. The Government will make some serious money giving speeding tickets to all these people who can’t slow down and respect the road. I am sure if some of these people start getting speeding tickets costing them $300/400.00 they will have no choice but to slow down. After the third time caught speeding the car should be taken off the road or license suspended for a few years.

    Dreadful – how many more have to die or be injured before Barbados wakes up to the fact that driving standards are appalling there?
