    Alas, but we Dominicans can talk out of our heads eh when something happens. a number of issues could cause this other than phone. I cannot believe that someone would actually be texting in all that rain, though not impossible. what about bad tires, or maybe the person is not familiar with our Roads.
    jeezzzeeee people! Relax a bit and stop getting excited over everything

    Everytime we have a good piece of road its the same result. I suspect we want back our pot holes.

    Wet road, slippery when wet. Unless he swerved to avoid your typical Marigot driver who was driving in the middle of the road again, we have all missed running into one of them.

    Speeding might be the problem or the driving was texting. I hope is doing ok. They are driving to crazy down they should be giving them ticket to reckless drivers.

    Went off the road? The sky looks clear. No dark clouds and rain. Speeding?
    Some SUV’s could be dangerous. They have been known to be prone to accidents which may not be the fault of the driver. Let us hope this is so and that the driver was not injured.

    That looks like a case of texting or a Visitor forgetting which side of the road to drive on

      It appears that the driver was driving on the right side of the road

    Not surprised in the least. I just returned home after spending a couple of weeks in Dominica and I have never seen more bad driving anywhere. I personally saw 3 vehicles that had been involed in accidents on the west coast in that short time. Another thing, drivers in Dominica have a habit of passing on blind corners. Several times when I was driving I has to get out of the way of oncoming traffic under the More Daniel cliff.

      Could not agree with you more!!!!! In my opinion, the only two factors to remedy that dangerous situation is continued Education and Enforcement to the full extent of the law. One week removed from driving on our roads during the most busiest time of year. I noticed some of our drivers have no clue and plain to the naked eye some do not give a dam about the other persons driving and walking on our roads. I noticed with keen interest our motorcyclist riding without head gear, shirtless, intimidating other road users, riding with open shoes, their pillion rider in the same light, and my conclusion was; what F/I madness is this, and how long the authorities is going to allow this madness to continue? When we allow persons who seek attention and trying to impress others who do not think a moment of who they are at the expense of other Law abiding citizens. I say this madness MUST STOP! or else our cemetery and emergency ward will be very busy if this nonsense is not nip in the bud immediately.

        We dont give a rat’s behind how Egyptian or Vietnamese or other people on the planet drive. We are talking about OUR people protecting themselves from harm.

    Drive especially carefully and slower when it is raining and the roads are slick. Too many people here thinking that they know how to drive when they don’t. Good drivers don’t take foolish chances and speed around the island.

    It seems I have driven on this road before but I didn’t know what name it called,now I know it called Pagua.I hope those are involved in this accident are not injured.
