The two occupants of a Mitsubishi Pajero registration # PK637, escaped serious injury when the vehicle in which they were traveling overturned on the West Coast Road near Batalie on Saturday.

A source, who was at the scene, told Dominica News Online (DNO) that the Pajero, which was being driven by the son of Government minister, Dr. Collin McIntyre, was traveling from north to south along that section of road when the driver apparently lost control and the vehicle overturned.

The accident occurred shortly before 5.00 pm a short distance down hill from Sunset Bay Club.

Fortunately, according to the source,  the driver and an only passenger were able to walk out of the extensively damaged vehicle without any apparent injury.

    Dominicans are too show off when they are driving.
    Almost everyone can drive but there is something called (Principles of Driving).
    Unless we apply the principles, we are gonna havehave many accidents and fatalities too.
    Remember that you can never be too busy to attend your own funeral. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT.AMEN.

    the vehicle did not turn over itself, there had to be a cause.. pajero’s are solid vehicles with very rigid suspension. those youngsters had to be fast and could not control their speed.

    Drivers need to slow down and stop speeding for no apparent reason. But more importantly, their passengers never tell them to slow down and drive safely. What will it take to wake up people.

    In view of the extensive damage to the vehicle and its position, they are fortunate that no one was injured. Shaken up maybe? Thank God they escaped injury.
    He lost control of his vehicle? Was he driving too fast? When driving, keep your eyes on the road, where you are heading to and look out for other vehicles. They in turn must do likewise.
    No cellular or any such phone, talking on it and texting while driving. It is imperative that you look where you are driving and drive cautiously and when going around a bend.
