    @Barbados Today, could I please make a suggestion. The police withheld the young man’s name until his family was notified however the car number plate is clearly visible in your photo. Please bear such things in mind when you want to be “first with the news”.

      Barbados Today’s reporters can do better. It is a Nissan Pathfinder and not a Ford.

      Really insensitive!

      The media can be grossly inconsiderate, their main focus is to be the first to scoop a story regardless of the consequences.

    Human-driven vehicles kill 1.3 million people annually, almost 3,287 deaths per day. Time for a change

    It’s sad to hear of another road fatality, however because the registration number is visible in the photo doesn’t mean that the owner was actually driving at the time of the accident.

    Barbados has too many car accidents. That’s not normal….. and they’re always really bad……

    Surely there is software that can “scramble” the number plate??

  10. Saundra December 29, 2016 at 1:40 am

    The age of the driver and the description of the vehicle are dead giveaways…pardon the pun. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Gone too soon…may he RIP.

    A Ford Pathfinder???

    Seriously!! This is 2016 technology makes it easy to spread news like wildfire. People don’t have to wait on the media or police to know something has gone wrong. My family member died a couple years ago and we got the information before the police got to us. For me the biggest highlight is if he died without a Savior. If he died not knowing Jesus that is the biggest tragedy of all.

    Any critisism should be taken for positive way forward…sensitivity in these matters is strongly encouraged. Condolences to the family of the young man.
