Three-vehicle smash up along Newton

Deputy General Secretary of the Barbados Workers Union Dwaine Paul and two other motorists this morning escaped serious injury following a three-vehicle smash up, which occurred on the ABC Highway, between the Deighton Griffith Secondary School and the Newton Roundabout in Christ Church.

Paul’s silver grey Nissan Tiida motor car was extensively damaged, so too the silver grey Nissan Navara. The third vehicle, a female-driven blue Toyota Yaris, overturned and ended up in a ditch.

The accident occurred around 9 a.m. and brought traffic on the busy section of the highway to a crawl.

    Good new that no one died. Bad news is that the Insurance companies will be crying again. From the damage of these vehicles, they go to be made out of “toilet-paper”.It’s time to tell JAPAN put in some metal and less plastic in vehicles coming to BIM. We spend millions on their automobiles ,so we do have a say.

    OK. So it couldn’t have been potholes or bad lighting. Surely it wasn’t bad or careless driving…..

    Alex you realy think that Japan will use more metal in cars when the world is going almost 100% elactric powered cars? If you had said carbon fibre it would have been more acceptable!

    Which Relevant Authority …or even an interested party ( Minister of Transport; Insurance Association of Barbados; .R.B.P.F.; Q.E.H. Director; C.Bank Guv, who is watching scarce F/X disappear as replacement vehicles are imported…Road Safety ( ha!) Association)….who will analyse ALL pertinent info on this madness, identify remedies, address the nation, and implement solutions urgently urgently?

    When more than one entity ,or person, has partial responsibility, and ALL seek to keep “heads down”, surely the Big Boss will step in, and have ONE speak officially to the nation for the benefit of all citizens?

    It tells me that we have LOTS more F/X reserves, than is the current wisdom.
