What’s going on?
The Barbados Road Safety Association (BRSA) is calling for a full report on the collision between a route taxi (ZR) and a car that claimed the life of 54-year-old Kaye Welch last Thursday, just before 6 a.m.
Shelly Ross, secretary of the BRSA, expressed concern about the manner in which this fatality was treated. “Every road fatality in Barbados is usually reported to the public through the media and this accident cannot be different, and I am calling for a full report to be made public. I learnt of the accident through the reports of Landis Hinds, son of the deceased, and this is not good enough,” she said in a written statement to this newspaper.
Last Saturday, Hinds, 34, complained that the police had not been forthcoming with the information concerning his mother’s death and that no family member was officially contacted by the police.
He said his mother and stepfather Andrew Welch were travelling on board the route taxi on their way to his house when it was involved in the collision.
