Hastings without power after accident
AN EARLY MORNING accident yesterday at Hastings, Christ Church, caused a power outage in the immediate area.
The accident, which took place around 3:50 a.m., involved cars driven by Lenroy Scott, 26, of St Patrick’s, Christ Church, and Carlisle Gibbons, 24, of Drax Hall, St George. Gibbons had one passenger. All complained of pain about their bodies.
The cars and an adopt-a-stop bus stop were extensively damaged. A utility pole was cut down, causing the power outage.
The road was closed to facilitate police investigations and for Barbados Light & Power (BL&P) crews to work on repairs so that power could be restored.
Stephen Worme, the BL&P’s chief operating officer, said that by 5 a.m. most of the customers affected by the initial outage had their supply restored. And by 4 p.m. all the work was completed. (AH)
