Man escapes serious injury in accident


Due to the quick action of medic Patrick Rollock, 26-year-old Nico Beckles walked away from an accident this morning, which could have turned out much differently.

Beckles was driving a white Toyota Corolla when his car stuck an Adopt-A-Post sign on the ABC Highway in Warrens, St Michael around 10:30 a.m today.

The car, in which Beckles was the lone occupant, overturned into the ditch, where it landed on its side against some rocks.

Rollock, who is also a taxi driver, was on a job and passed the scene shortly after the accident occurred. He stopped and assisted Beckles, who escaped with just a few scratches and bruises, from the vehicle.

When a Barbados TODAY team visited the scene, Beckles was still visibly shaken, but appeared to be ok. (DB)

    Shud be a law against such road-side signs striking vehicles.

    @, Tony,W, hail, hail, a group of 8 bajans were together you made us laugh. our take , lots of people in Barbados just cannot drive, how did they get they licence.

    So simple , continuous vehicle stop check, and search would save the lives of lots of bajans, recover lots of stolen property, drugs, guns , stolen vehicles, villains on the run, drivers without full licences, uninsured vehicles, unroadworthy vehicles and drivers ban from driving if this happen in bim.
