    Tragic and costly accident! I pray that none of the drivers are from the gay community. We gays are so careful on the road, it’s just part of our humble nature. I hope no one was seriously injured! Kisses from the pretty boys in Roseau!

    There are too many accidents in Fond Cole. The investigation will prove who was at fault.
    Drivers, never let your guard down. Drive safely and always look out for other drivers including pedestrians.

    I would like to know, where the HELL, they going driving fast. All these twists, turns, ups and downs, Where are they going but to kill themselves, and especially the innocent. Stop showing off yourselves behind a wheel. I know thee are times to speed, but for Gods sake, where in Dominica we can speed on a good two mile road without, turning or twisting.

    Only ignorant people drive without commonsense. Metal, rubber, gas, is no match for skin and bones. That’s what we humans are made off. A little extra fat is not going to help.

    truck is top heavy with fluid load so it is easy to cause a flip unlike a car that has a lower center of gravity.. So getting a truck to flip is easy… getting a truck with liquids in it to flip is even easier…. getting a car to hit a truck with liquid load to flip is you get the point.

      Wrong!!!! Your comments are strangely incorrect. The Possible cause as to why this commercial vehicle may have toppled over maybe,because its payload were incorrect distributed when loaded.

      Please note I am a UK Based Road Traffic Accident Investigator and i have dealings with lots of those cases Daily.Hence.

        @Kay-A little bit of education for you from my 32 years experience as a Road transport Investigation >See Below.
        When talking about vehicle weight, almost everybody knows that a vehicle has a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) which refers to its plated weight. What a lot of people don’t realise is that there is also a plated weight for the front and rear axles. This means that although you could be running legally overall, you could be illegal thanks to the weight being balanced too far to the front or rear.This is why in this instance why the vehicle may have toppled so easily.This is one of my projectile i would take in court to substantiate my evidences if i were to be involve on this case.
        PS>Please Note I am a Dominican Based in the UK.I do know what i am talking about so please be too ignorant.

        Mr Anonymouse…
        I mentioned the words ” in this area “, among others which you chose to neglect. Well…In this area the Car driver first passed the FondCole BUSSS STOP, OK. There you have a PEDESTRIAN CROSSING and INTERSECTION. So you Especting People and Traffic movement across the road. There-for NOT a place to be SPEEEEDING. Next, he is approaching ANOTHER BUS STOP AND PEDESTRIAN Crossing and INTERSECTIONZZZZ, OK. And at that time of the morning you have INCREASED activity. So smart Drivers know this is NOT a place to be Speeding like that. You could HIT somebody or in this case a Truck crossing the road. Nobody’s trying so sound smart.PLZZZZ

    This is a very dangerous location. Vehicles have a habbit of overtaking on the inside (left hand side) when a vehicle in front of them is stationary on the main road, waiting to turn right into the Fond Cole Rd.- I must admit that have done so myself. I think that the outside lane nr. this T-junction (let’s say right from the coast guard exit road) should be blocked off to make this kind of overtaking impossible.

    PS. Whilst on the subject can the authorities also pls. relocate the nearby bustop (opposite the fish vending place), which is located right on a pedestrian crossing smack on the main road. Again, this is so dangerous.
