UPDATE-Fatality at Salters

One person was killed and at least five others sustained neck, back and leg injuries following a three-vehicle smash up which occurred along Salters Road, St Michael just after 1p.m. today.

The fatal collision involved a public service vehicle, B155, and two motor cars – a Kia Picanto and a red Audi A4.

This afternoon the body of 70-year-old Kishore Samtani Thani of Elizabeth Park, Christ Church was identified at the scene by his wife Dr Vijaya Samtani Thani, a well-known medical doctor. Other family members were also gathered at the scene but declined to speak to reporters.

 

 

 

The minibus was driven by 41-year-old Nigel Burrowes of Cherry Grove, St John and the Audi by 43-year-old Steven Drummond of St Silas Heights, St James. Burrowes complained of back pains and Drummond of lower back and neck pains.

Three passengers in the minibus were also taken to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance for medical treatment.

Today’s death brings to 18 the total number of lives lost on the island’s roads so far this year, compared to ten for all of last year.

    A lot of these accidents occur due to selfishness, spite and wickedness.

    Dear God…a life is lost; there is no clue (either stated, or one that might be interpreted from a scene photo)…and yet we have the usual trolls coming to conclusions, and assigning blame, even to racist over-tones (“d-man” ; “spitefulness”etc).
    May I offer that the causes of many of such accidents, especially fatalities, have been assigned by the R.B.P.F. investigators to speeding, carelessness, and a failure to observe road regulations. One other regulation urgently and critically needed is the introduction of breathalyzer “testing, which will come “soon” after we get DEM back in power, and have raised a $15Million loan from C.D.B. to educate , inform, and implement, and have a “launch” party at Ilaro Court.

    My sincere condolences to the family of the deceased and all bereaved, and injured.
