UPDATE-Three hurt in Lancaster crash

Two drivers and a six-year-old boy were injured in a collision at Lancaster, St James this afternoon.

The accident, which occurred around 1:10 p.m., involved a silver Grand Vitara and a silver Nissan March motor car.

The driver of the Nissan –  51-year-old Marvo Cyrus of Redman Village, St Thomas  – was travelling with her six-year-old grandson Zarian Cyrus at the time of the accident.

Cyrus, who had to be freed from the vehicle by personnel from the Barbados Fire Service, complained of pain to both of her legs, while her grandson received a laceration to the head and face. They were both transported to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance.

However, the driver of the Vitara  – 26-year-old Samantha Skeete of Black Best St Peter – opted to seek private medical attention after complaining of pains to her neck and back. Her passenger 25-year-old Adam Steinbok of Pine Garden St Michael escaped unhurt.

    Just recently a lady receiving an award for fifty years of safe driving made mention of what she observed to be much selfishness on the roads in Barbados. While others will go on about drunk driving, the PSV operators and bikers doing stunts, this lady is onto something that we don’t want to address. The reason being, we don’t want to
    acknowledge that all of us are part of the problem; just shift the blame to those whom we consider to be of lesser standing in society.
    What would it take for a driver to throttle down and allowed the overtaking vehicle to safely do so? In many instances I’ve observed fools even increasing their speed as they’re being overtaken heedless of the oncoming vehicle. then, to make matters even worst, the oncoming vehicle in spite of the perilous situation ahead continues at a speed that will further compound the situation.
    There was a time not too long ago when drivers extended that courtesy of dimming their high beams, now it seems no one gives a damn…Look to ourselves and we’ll see that we’re all part of the problem.
    Stop being selfish driver!

    Well said Whitehills, how right you are. You have hit the nail straight on the head. Selfishness is what’s being portrayed on our roads daily. I have experienced all you have mentioned. I however, can see confrontation at some time being occurred. In saying so, I would go as far as saying that all this boils down to is poor driving instructors. It’s time that the ministry of transport look into the daily usage of drivers on the roads and put some serious fines in place to combat these rogues.
