    Richard Johnson, it seems that you are living in a hole, when there`s accident like this, every possible thing must be checked, in the picture the vehicle looks like it disintegrated. It`s a motor vehicle not a card board box.

    “Twisted metal”, lives lost. Some serious standards needed for these automobiles coming into Barbados. …(.Despite the speed test one may add ).

    R.I.P. young man. It is always a travesty when someone loses their life and it resonates even more so when they really have not had a chance to live it fully!
    P.S. …Details pertaining to the vehicles involved are extremely important as they might prod another motorist’s ( witness) me
    mory of the actions of the drivers involved.
