Four vehicles crash on Harbour Road
DAVE GASKIN WAS trapped in his car after it was involved in an accident along Prescod Boulevard highway (Harbour Road) yesterday just after 6 p.m.
He and his passenger Rhondella Yorrick were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance. Yorrick’s son, who was also a passenger in the car, was not hurt.
Gaskin complained of pain in a hand, back and chest, and Yorrick in her chest, while the right side of her face was swollen.
The accident, which involved three cars and a Transport Board bus, blocked the road outside the Barbados Agricultural Management Company’s sugar storage terminal.
Transport Board bus passenger Juan Forde complained of pain in her stomach and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance.
Another bus passenger who complained of pain in her hand said everything happened in a flash, while the bus driver, who declined to give his name, agreed that the event unfolded very quickly.
“I don’t know what to tell you. All my concern was to stop the bus, check on my passengers and then make sure the passengers in the other cars were alright,” he said.
The other drivers involved sustained minor injuries but declined comment.
