    Again speed and ignorance,maybe one day some of the driving public would realize speed kills and driving with sense saves lives

    What an assumption to make if you where not there. What in the article made you assume they were speeding, was it the fact that it happened at 11:59pm, that both drivers were reasonably young men or that it was critcal. Are all accidents due to speed/ignorance

    As police are still conducting investigations, @Outside should give his/her eyewitness statement… but if we’re going on assumptions, I’m saying that there was an oil slick – in Woodbourne!

    Barbados roads need proper road management , white lines, cats eyes , speed limits ,speed cameras, sleep policemen/road humps…spot checks on vehicles , which would also help the police with lot of crime……

    two vehicles traveling in an opposite direction at 60 km and colliding will have the same force as a vehicle traveling at 120 km hitting a parked car

    Accidents do happen, I had to run off the road trying to avoid a run in with a truck driver, who obviously wanted to get the road for him self.
