Another tragic road accident kills four

Just two days after the horrific bus crash, which killed six people, another accident occurred on August 1, when a small van collided with a minibus on the west coast road, at Mullins, St. Peter. Four members of one family (a mother, two daughters and a niece), in the van, died.

I have no particular comment at this time, other than a sense of numbness when I look at the result of the crash in the form of the overturned vehicle (picture courtesy of The Nation). Again, my sympathies go to the families and friends who are now grieving. It has been a brutal few days on this island.

This is quite sad.

1) Strict rules and implementation of the laws
2) The people must realize themselves and respect the laws
3) Good roads and maintenance by the Government

If the above go perfectly the accidents will be reduced.
