The vehicles after the head-on collision.

A 54-year-old man lost his left leg and spent some time in intensive care after being injured in a head-on collision in Argyle Sunday night.

Wendell Toney of Colonaire lost his left leg as a result of the accident.

The man, Wendell Toney of Colonaire, was travelling north along the Argyle Public Road when a sport utility vehicle, travelling in the opposite direction, crashed into Toney’s minivan.

Allan Alexander, head of Invest SVG, the nation’s investment promotion agency, was driving the sport utility vehicle and was treated for minor injuries and discharged.

However, Toney, a Vinlec employee, spent time in surgery and was warded at the Intensive Care Unit of the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, before being transferred to the Male Surgical Ward.

The incident left Toney pinned in the minivan with his left leg barely attached to his body, witnesses say.

Among the responders to the accident was the fire and rescue service at the Argyle International Airport, which dispatched a fire tender and a rescue crew, which assisted in freeing the injured man.

iWitness News understands that the incident occurred as a result of a race between two motorists, one of which reportedly hesitated while overtaking at high speed on the stretch of road.

Police are investigating.

  1. I could only imagine the pain Mr Toney is feeling (physical, mental, emotional ) Because of Mr Alexander’s reckless, selfish, ‘don’t give a damn about other drivers on the road attitude ‘ driving. I only hope he visited Mr Toney in the hospital. Now Mr Alexander is going to continue to live his normal life on two feet while Mr Toney?????? I pray Mr Alexander’ insurance do right by this man. To all drivers, please drive carefully with sense, as Don Bobb use to say on the radio, “remember you got your license because of your skills you didn’t get it to kill”. Something like that he use to say. To Mr Toney and family my prayers.
