    Here we go again , another smash up. My take and I will always say this , cars in Barbados are not road worthy. you never see an accident where the vehicles are not a write off, what the hell the insurance companies and the police are doing to put in place ideas to stop this madness.
    Again the vehicles are not road worthy…
    Drivers on they cell phones…
    Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
    Unfit driver who hasn’t pass a test.
    Or bajans just cannot drive.

    The accident shouldn’t be of a surprise, the fact that no one got killed should be because accidents like this have been a regular occurrence for the past year that I know of.

    Right there where the gray car is, is a sm side rd which leads onto the main,,its a semi blind turn onto road from said gap,(you can only see about 25ft down the rd) Any vehicle heading in the direction the water truck is facing(east) at a fair speed is not easily seen from a motorist exiting the gap until it gets 25ft away. MTW need to go to every junction in the island where motorist cannot see down the rd bc of obstructions(cut rocks,bush trees, guard walls,fences, hedges, business signs, parked vehicles) and fix them immediately.

    In barbados there are many many winding roads and steep corners,,sometimes the road is wet and a motorist tries to execute a corner way to fast and skids out.
