        @Dominique Tudor; why report it in the first place since you want it to be kept secret.

      Any one close enough should have been notified already. They are asking for information so the license plate may help in anyone recalling information leading up to the accident.

    This is silly talk about liscence plate. The decease photo is displayed and the names of the survivors are stated. Now stop it. Condolence to the family.

    • hcalndre August 13, 2017 at 7:24 am

      Jennifer, I don`t know why bajans have this habit that everything must be so secretive and this comes from the government all the way down. Its only since the social media, people get to know what`s going on in Barbados because the radio, tv and print media are scared of the law suits or it is who is involved such as their friends and so-call big-ups that they can`t report it. I don`t see it in Europe or N. America, that`s why from time to time you hear about so much corruption and underhand deals in Barbados long after they occurred.

    First and foremost, i give my condolences and well wishes to all involved. May God give you the strength and courage to get through this trying time.
    Second, Pullhead Davis i don’t really know what you meant by your statement, but any area is a road fatality area. But I’m sure you meant well with your comment

    Condolences to his family. I was more concerned about the videos of the accident on social media minutes after it happened. Shame on them. This morbid filming needs to stop!
