Driver and passenger unhurt in highway accident

TWO EMPLOYEES of Banks Holdings Ltd remained calm during a scary situation when the supply truck they were travelling in skid across the ABC Highway.

The driver of the vehicle, who did not disclose his name, said the vehicle “picked up a slide” while travelling towards the Errol Barrow Roundabout and the Grantley Adams International Airport.

It struck the jersey barrier, rebounded and skid across the wet road, finally coming to rest with the back of the vehicle on top another section of the barrier.

The driver said he was “good” and made sure to “opposite lock” against the skid, saying he only felt nervous after it was all over. He said it was the first time he had ever got into such a situation.

His fellow employee, who was also not named, said he braced when the vehicle started to slide but was not afraid. He too said he was unhurt.

Police and Banks Holdings management were on the scene conducting investigations and ascertaining the health of the men. A wrecker arrived to take the truck away where it is expected it will be repaired and returned to use again at a later date. (CA)
