WICKHAM'S CAY II, Tortola, VI- Traffic along the James Walter Francis Drive East Carriageway was interrupted when at least four vehicles came into contact with each other today, July 14, 2017.

It is unclear what were the circumstances surrounding the pileup around 3:00 P.M. close to the traffic lights at Wickham's Cay II on the main island of Tortola.

There were no reported injuries and the vehicles involved did not appear to be badly damaged.

Traffic accidents seem to be on the increase in the Virgin Islands.

      It is obvious that you have not travelled far from your village. Have u ever been to Europe and your mother country England?. Guess not. Let me tell u they use right hand drive vehicles. Have u ever been to St. Thomas or the US territories? Guess u did these places are paradise to you. You may have noticed something. Although they use left hand drive vehicles they drive on the right hand side of the road. Do u have enough sense to see Why? By the way, about cultures...it is also obvious that the only culture that you all are willing to adopt and exchange yours for is America's. Culture do not collisions...if that is the case i see why there are so many here. Collisions are caused when we exhibit bad road judgement. By the way when u noticed another right hand vehicle on the left side of the road..bear this in mind that driver is on the right side of the road. One final question. Do you know why Americans drive left hand drive vehicles on the right side of the road? When you get the answer you wouldnt mind changing your culture.

        of edification and education:

        Our "mother country" is:

        Africa first and the Virgin Islands second. Whether all agree with those facts or not, they are the facts.
