This is the second multiple-fatality accident in St. Vincent and the Grenadines in two weeks.

  1. No check and balance sheet in place to ensure vehicles are road worthy. Where is the ministry of transport? Where is honorable Julian Francis on these matters?

    Very tragic, painful and sorrowful.

    May the bereaved and grieving families; …loved ones and friends,’ find solace,
    knowing that the people and nation also share their sorrows.

    May the injured recover speedily, and their little souls rest peacefully.
