A bus driver from the Kalinago Territory is dead following an accident in the Fond Melle area late Monday.
The man has been identified as 62-year-old Joseph Viville, also known as Tipa or Pirate, from Bataca.
He was returning home from a Dominica Labour Party rally in St. Joseph.
According to the police PRO, Inspector John Carbon, the accident involved three buses.
At the time it occurred a Nissan bus, registration number HE469, was assisting the other bus, a Toyota Hiace, registration number HB665, which was stationary.
Viville was in front of his vehicle (the Nissan bus), when a Coaster, with registration number HA492, traveling towards Castle Bruce, experienced difficulties with its brake and first collided with the Hiace bus, then the Nissan bus.
Viville got trapped under his Nissan bus which dragged for over 30 feet.
Two other persons who were standing on the roadside were also injured.
They were transported to the Princess Magaret Hospital where they were treated.
72-year-old, Norma Valmond of Mahaut River, was admitted while the other was discharged.
Viville was pronounced dead at the scene by the district medical officer and was then transported to a funeral home.
A coroners’ inquest has convened and post mortem is to be carried out.
Investigations are continuing.
