    Suzuki van? SUV van? SUV’s have been known to overturn and cause accidents, injuries and death.
    I am sorry to read that she is severely injured. I pray that in time she will recover. May God always be with her and bless her to eventual full recovery.

      God bless she and Chris? You out of touch man. Where is Chris? Marcelle is a widow for many years and for her sake and her kids I hope she pulls through. I’m hearing she sustained major head trauma so I’m hopeful she can be flown even to Martinque.

    DNO you have been very consistent with showing only the actual vehicle/location of the accident and not the victims. Thank you for your consideration for the family and friends of those in accidents and those lost to them. Much appreciated.

    May we all be safe on the roads.

    As a former traffic investigator, accidents will happen, no doubt about that, but, there are avoidable accidents and genuine, or unavoidable accidents, thats why they are fefered too as ” accidents” From my limited vantage point and observation seems to indicates wet road conditions as evident by the curious on lookers some holding umbrellas, I hasten to say i was not there and i am not assumeing one cause or the other, but sometimes the way we drive and the ” NONE”defensive nature of driving on any road has a lot to do with our many accidents, therfore, Education is key and lots of it I dare say. Or else we just have`nt seen the worst.

      The rain seems to have fallen after the accident, because when the vehicle was moved, the road beneath it was dry. Watch the pics. Second pic, before vehicle was moved, first pic, after vehicle was moved. Qui kalitay former traffic investigator sah noh?

        Not deserving, but that as it may, my point is and always will be the way we drive in Dominica. Wet or Dry roads my premise still stands. Thanks
        short sighted ??ROZ” OH BOY! I have a headache”.Simple!Defensive driving rule. Always drive for yourself and the other Driver always look at the bigger picture and anticipate the likely hood of the potiential of an accident” Whats so difficult to understand. ROZ”? Only in Dominica.

      Well as you hastened to add your non-presence. Let me add mine. I live right around this area and let me tell how crazy this is when there suddenly appears what would seem to be a stray dog or car just hauling itself infront your vehicle no time and see what happen, she got hurt and it get away hahah. People need to keep their animals on a leach. Friday evening on my way home someone ran over a dog in that same area. Might also add that the human beings on this stretch of road are even more inconsiderate…you will kindly slow down and allow them to go across and look at them ONE STEP for TODAY ZERO for TOMORROW. HMMM. I do hope that she is ok and non of these factors contributed to her unfortunate situation and lastly not on the cell phone or trying to reach for it on the other seat.

      And tell me wat does this have to do with the Gov’t???? I tired of Dominican blaming everything on the Gov’t!!! A hurricane hits the island; blame the Gov’t! Liat suspends a flight; blame the Gov’t! A poor woman has an accident; blame the Gov’t!! Dry season coming. I supose when it does not rain, we will blame that on the Gov’t too!! 8-O

    Another Crash, I pray that she`s ok and will recover fully.We may have to set up a task force to educate our drivers and how to use our roads.

      That rings a bell! I’m not sure that all our drivers are professionally taught, let alone examined. In particular I observe non-use of rearview- & side mirrors and direction indicators. Do drivers, qualified in Dominica know what all the road signs and markings mean and are they tested on their knowledge and observance of them? Last but not least, how do we ensure that drivers’ eyesights are adequate for taking safely operating a vehicle on the public road? Let’s be serious and improve our standards.
