Update-Police say 28 injured in Road View accident

Five people were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) for medical treatment following an early morning vehicular accident at Road View, St Peter that left 23 others nursing injuries.

The accident occurred around 6:45 a.m., involving a Transport Board bus and a minibus.

None of the injuries were said to be life threatening. However, minibus passenger Dawn Kellman had to be transported by stretcher after sustaining a serious hip injury.

The bus driver,  51-year-old Trevor Green of Chalky Mount, St Andrew,  complained of pain to his shoulder, neck and chest following the collision with the minibus, driven by Wayne Harris of Padmore Village, St Thomas.

Police say 20 of the 28 injured were treated at the scene and discharged. Three people were sent to the nearby Maurice Byer Polyclinic for medical attention.

Several emergency officials, including four doctors and two nurses from the QEH, were on the scene.

Eight ambulances, including two from the Barbados Defence Force, also responded to the mass casualty situation.

Just last Thursday three people were rushed to the hospital following a three-vehicle accident, on the same St Peter stretch, which left eight others injured.

    When are we going to develop a comprehensive transit policy and get these mini-buses and ZRs off the road? They present a clear and present danger to all motorists on the road, simply because their earnings are commission based.
