      It seems as though you really need Jesus Christ in your soul, Lamar Williams.

      according to u i’d need jesus, according to muslims i’d need allah, according to buddhas i’d need buddha…and every single one of u wud think u r right and argue strongly the same way. BELIEVING SOMETHING DOES NOT MAKE IT REAL.

      Hunte Omar; motorist are not always at fault when an accident occurs; some pedestrians do foolishness on the road also but we r always ready to cast ALL the blame on the motorist

      Guess we also need to stop at every rum shop / bar etc and see if anyone wants to cross the road in a drunken stupor and ensure they get across safely and then proceed . Newsflash . Pedestrians , bicyclist do just as much foolishness on the roads as cars . Not every time a vehicle is involved in an accident with one of them is the driver at fault .

      You are correct but when you get behind the wheel of a car you have to take on board all these obstacles that are going to hider you and respect the car will win against the drunk pedestrian the child running across the road the elderly person that isn’t walking fast enough . What are the statistics of tourists in rental cars being in accidents on the roads btw ?

      lol paige u r hilarious. so funny that ryan can like ur comment also while ignoring the facts posted above. i’m guessing since u believe in jesus he is real…so since hindus believe in krishna, he is also real…further, little children believe in santa claus, which means he is also real.

    Now , I’m not saying speed was the cause of this accident , because I was not there, but every morning on my way to work , I see cars speeding on the highway, even when the roads are wet. Some people don’t seem too bothered by the statistics , re the amount of road deaths so far , over last year. So….. More to come. God help us all.

    It is time after 12 accidents which exceeds last year that some motorist should be taken off the road. In three months and a record of 12 road fatalities should cause us to ponder.

    For an island so small to be recording so high a road fatality in such a short time.We need to start asking question like,
    Is it because of the condition of our roads today?
    Is it because our roads are to small?
    Or is it because we are to reckless on our roads not thinking of others?
    You Tell Me.
    My thoughts are with that family

    Lamar Williams. Ask Ryan Bayne if he believes in Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny and the Snowman. I’m sure he does. If God made everything then who made God? The bible was written 3600 years ago starting with “In the beginning” Yet, the dinosaurs roamed the same earth that God made in the beginning, 65 million years ago. Where was god then? Remember it took god 6 days to make the heavens and the earth. He rested on the 7th day.

    Where is the jurisdiction and all these so-called lawyers being admitted to the bar every few months or so. Where are the voices on this madness..

    In America, preliminary data from the National Safety Council estimates 40,200 people died in motor vehicles crashes last year, a 6% rise from 2015. Jamaica, during the period 2015-16, recorded a total of 679 road fatalities across the island also resulting in an increase. Barbados, roughly 2.5 times the size of Washington, DC and smaller than the smallest parish in Jamaica – Hanover, had a record low in 2016. Desmond Brown [2016] wrote in an article published on this site that 2016 was a “record-low in 3 decades” that is 30 years! Where only but 10 road fatalities were recorded, down from 22 in 2015 and 14 in 2014, as of today 11 have been recorded for 2017, it’s back to reality.

    People will ultimately come to realize accidents will inevitably happen once: 1) humans continue to operate machines 2) humans who continue to drive aggressively and more impatiently than in times past; Younger drivers, tired drivers, drunk drivers and running late drivers. People drive with too much on their minds and are unable to- FOCUS – is the only thing that will put road fatalities caused by humans to death.

    Washington DC. with a population of 658,893 twice as much as Barbados 277,821; even though smaller in land size recorded 28 road fatalities in 2016 a low from previous years whereby fatalities reached the 70s because people were unable to focus for whatever reason.

    It’s really sad someone lost they life and people turning it into if god exist conversation,I believe in a higher power,a chair can be a higher power anything can be someone’s higher power but I choose to call Jesus mine,I to ????? But you know what you believe in what you make you happy,I find that if I can’t walk on water ,my mine already telling me it can’t be done but reality is there are things in this world that you don’t and never will understand because you haven’t a clue that what we see with our eyes is only vision unlocking your mind(3rd eye) will open up your thinking and understanding your path will be much easier,my condolences to the family of the deceased, the flesh is cold but the spirit is free

    As far as certain people is concern ,we cant blame the politicians for not doing they job by installing the right technology and management on the roads in Barbados ,to try and stop the madness…… so what we all do is to wait on God….and if we wait on god and carrying on doing nothing, while our families , friends and neighbours loose they lives in fatal vehicle accidents…….
