UPDATE: Fatal accident at Westmoreland

A 61-YEAR-OLD WOMAN was struck and killed along the Westmoreland, St James section of the Ronald Mapp Highway.

Police public relations officer Inspector Roland Cobbler said the accident occurred around 11 a.m.

Two trucks reportedly collided and one in turn struck the woman, whose name has not yet been released. She had just disembarked from a bus.

A neighbour, who did not want to be identified, told NATION Online many accidents occurred at the junction but only the serious ones gained attention. He called the nicknames of three people who died there.

In March, 49-year-old Anderson Joseph was killed nearby and his five-year-old son Nazaria was admitted to hospital with injuries.

When the Weekend Nation visited the area back in March, residents called for a pedestrian crossing, traffic lights or a roundabout to reduce the number of accidents. (Barbados Nation)
