2nd road fatality for 2018

Barbados has recorded its second road fatality for the year.

Dead is a 36-year-old male, who was a passenger in a lady-driven white Toyota Nze motorcar.

The condition of the female driver is unknown following the accident which occurred around 4 a.m. Saturday at Belle Gully, St Michael.

No further details are available at this time. However, up to 9:30 this morning, the section of Belle Gully road where the accident occurred remained closed to vehicular traffic as police continued their investigations.

Earlier this month  64-year-old Henderson Greenidge, a Barbadian living in England, and staying at Thicketts, St Philip, was struck by a motorcar along Four Roads, St Philip, becoming the island’s first road fatality for 2018.

Last year there were 28 road deaths in total all, up from ten the previous year.

    That is one unlucky shop.

    Over the years two other people have died at that shop under different circumstances, now this.

    They need to be more logical speed limits on our tiny streets. On our many one lane motor ways, we shouldn’t be driving at the same speed as those in metropolitan cities.

    Why keep blaming cell phones?it is highly unlikely that someone on a cellphone could cause the damage done ti this car. And yes name the gender. …we subconsciously think that only males drive so aggressively to cause such mayhem on our roads

    The manufactuers arn’t putting any safty factors into the firewalls of these vehicles the only thing they are giving you is a few air bags and you better be careful that they don’t cause your life. A properly set up motor sportcar in Barbados is 65% more safe than one from major manufactuers. Yuo have to be safe courteous and dilligent when driving in Barbados ,agressive young drivers forget the drivers safety manual and dive head on with high-beans blearing; which is one of the most discourteous things that can happen to a visiting driver on the island during a night time out on the island.

    Why do some bajans want everything of barbados so secretive? that`s why the politicians refuse to pass the integrity and transparency laws. Rapists, thieves, embezzlers, murderers, should be reported only if they`re convicted. Bajans are still living in the dark ages, they don`t want pictures, only if they are at some bashment or at crop-over or the politicians taking a photo-op., reporting that a female was the driver is a problem, the reporter should have said that some thing died and something was driving, give me a break.

    hcalndre you are so right, bajans love to cover up everything, even ordinary people you talk too, they love to cover up and make things look better than what they are. Thats why you got so many dangerous murderers on the street, the sewage problems, whats going on. The politicians are the ones who started this foolishness, because those who speak up, they want to say the persons are trouble makers. You could die in barbados from homelessness, joblessness and no money, but the way barbados want to present itself as this paradise. Its part of their culture to shut up and shut down things, by doing so they think the problems will go away. They cant understand when you face the problem head on, a couple of years from now that problem wont a problem. The same thing with families, if they have a family member that have mental problems, some families love to forget the person is alive. I say forget about the norm, only when you step out your comfort zone, step out your pretentious behavior will your problems because solutions.

    they are stupid, they dont even want to say an accident happen, they are trying to make it look like barbados is this holy nice place where people are always smiling and happy. Thats why the drug dealers take over many neighborhoods, because you see grown men and women look the other way, while the drug dealers occupy abandon homes or homes under construction and the homeowners living overseas. Then when the person come in the fix his or her home, the same people with no tongues want to say they dont know whats going on, because they more concern with keeping friends, they dont want the drug dealers to harass them, but how you going to get the problem solve. I advise homeowners who have abandon or undone homes to safeguard your homes or go home and sell it, because most bajans are just plain deceitful. They show you a good face, but know lots of bad things happen to your property behind your back, dont trust them, they love to cover up and shut down things.
