One injured in accident
AN EMPLOYEE of a media house narrowly escaped a collision and possible injury along Highway 2A today; but another driver was not as fortunate.
Describing it as a “frightening” experience, editorial driver at Barbados Today Maria Bascombe said she was driving in a northerly direction when a vehicle going in the opposite direction suddenly swerved in front of her.
That vehicle, driven by Henderson Drayton of Jackson, St Michael, eventually flipped and landed on its top in a nearby trench.
Drayton was trapped in the vehicle and personnel from the Barbados Fire Service were called in to assist ambulance personnel in freeing him. (YB)
