Two injured in Salters collision



Two men are nursing injuries following an accident involving a cane trailer and a Crane and Equipment Limited truck at Salters, St George.

Fire officers used the Jaws Of Life to remove the driver of the truck, Tyrone Franklyn of Church Village, St Philip.

Franklin, who broke both of his legs, was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance.

The second driver, Phillip Greaves of Thorpes Corner, St James, complained of pains to his left shoulder and legs.

    I wish a speedy recovery for all those hurt.

    But look at the state of the tyres on the cane truck though, when you enlarge the picture, even tough it’s grainy you can clearly see that that vehicle should not be o the road with tries in that condition.

    I have seen many trucks on the road with the wires on the tries showing through the rubber.

    I keep telling you folks, that these Vehicles are Substandard when they arrive in the Island as NEW Vehicles, when you add in years of No maintenance, no new Tires after 10 years+ of Use, and regular wear and tear, i am surprised that the Death and accident rate in Barbados in not even Higher.
    They are absoliutely NO Controls on what goes on the Road in Barbados, NO ONE at MTW knows how many Unroadworthy Vehicles are on our Roads.
    There has got to be a reason why there are som many SERIOUS Collisions on Barbados Roads, and special attention should be paid ti St.George and Route 1A from Walmer Lodge to Speightstown.

    Barbados is becoming a Joke especially so with a poor Government, the worst ever in the history of this beloved country.
