Two-vehicle accident along Black Rock

At this hour emergency response officials are on the scene of a two-vehicle accident along Black Rock Main Road, St Michael, directly in front the old police station.

The accident involves a minibus and a blue Toyota truck.

Two ambulances and two fire tenders have responded.

When the Barbados TODAY team arrived just before 7 a.m., officials were using the Jaws of Life to free the driver of the truck from his vehicle, while the driver of the minibus and his passengers, who appeared not be seriously injured, were being questioned by police.

More details as they become available.

    Trust everyone is ok. The road was wet so let’s give both drivers the benefit of the doubt. We know they are reckless but still………..

    Emergency what? this is all about insurance claims. Not even people’s feelings got hurt> Wet roads? heavy speeding vehicles? opportunity? what do you expect?

    Driving on public streets is certainly not a game of soccer, where one tests the other’s agility to score a goal.

    I reported B142 last week for reckless driving, speeding and overloading his bus.
    The problem is that a few ruin the reputation of the many.
    It is time this service was regulated and fined with the end result permits are taken.
    My understanding is that PSVs are often owned by investors who rent them out for a share of the take. They are polluters from a lack of maintenance of the engines and I am certain brakes are being refitted with asbestos containing shoes and pads.
    Perhaps it is time to stop taking about PSV safety and started sharply regulating it.
    It is not necessary to drive with the foot either always on the accelerator to the floor or the brakes. There is no need to accelerate around corners so your passengers end up flying around in the bus (when overloaded they support each other with their bodies), there is no need to be doing 80 kph along the road cutting in and out of traffic and making unsafe passes.
    Maybe a reward system for folks reporting the idiots would help get the bad ones off the road.
    Let’s hope nobody was injured seriously today.

    As long as a minibus or ZR is involved in an accident, the people will point the blame towards them. It is not fair, especially if you don’t know the facts, but after the folly that people witness every single day from them, we are conditioned to assume they are always in the wrong.

      I agree Mathew Jordan but people who travel the road everyday will have to also admit some stuff. 1 the state of our roads are worse than they have ever been and do in some way contribute to the high rate of accidents occurring daily. 2 Some of us are bad drivers and equally bad pedestrians we all do all kinds of mess and think we invincible but you are 100% on the PSV taking the hit on being wrong and sometimes there are not.

    If people want change change will come to stop the reckless madness of our people ..
    If these accidents which in many cases are fatal , were happening to the 1% people who control \Barbados and is looked after by our politicians, the madness would be vastly reduced in months….
    In barbados every where ,anytime ,an accident occurs , how long are these insurance companies going to stick with this craziness..
