Three-vehicle smash up

Police were forced to divert traffic away from the Waterford, St Michael area, following a three-vehicle smash up in the area this afternoon.

A police SUV and two motor cars were involved in the accident which occurred around 4:15 p.m. along Waterford Bottom in the vicinity of the Clyde Walcott Roundabout.

The police SUV was driven by 53-year-old Acting Inspector Winston Goddard, who is assigned to the Criminal Investigations Department, Oistins Police Station, while the motor cars were being driven by 48-year-old Basil Brathwaite of Fernihurst, Black Rock, St Michael, and 69-year-old Richford Drakes of Eden Lodge, St Michael.

Goddard and Brathwaite both complained of pain to the shoulder and back, while Drakes suffered minor abrasions to his face.

Goddard was transported by ambulance to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital while Brathwaite and Drakes opted to seek private medical attention.

    Only groups making money in Barbados appear to be auto shops and funeral parlors.

    With all due respect Barbados Today, That was NOT a three vehicle smash up It was a simple three vehicles (plural there) collision. As your details come to hand, you will see that someone was overtaking in that roundabout. The one on the outside or left lane is usually in the wrong. Stick to News you can trust……

    There was no overtaking, the green car had a problem and slammed into the other 2 vehicles that were just waiting in the line of traffic.
