    I hope the occupants of the car are not badly hurt but you do have to question what they were doing to end up flipping the car like that. That kind of thing does not tend to happen when you are driving safely to the speed limits

      Something was in the air yesterday. I couldn't wait to get home. This was about 0930 hours, early in the day. For some reason people were driving very fast and coming around corners at a high rate of speed, making me believe we would have a head on crash. This happened as I was coming from Pockwood Pond to go east. One car came from behind 2 cars to pass, including my car, only to turn off the road dead in front of me. If he would have just stayed behind us, he would have gotten to his entrance 5 seconds after us. Still scratching my head on that one. I am not surprised to see this car upside down, like I said "Something was in the air". People were driving reckless.

      You called the police to complain that someone took $3,000 from you to bring (aka ‘illegally smuggle’) your cousin to the island they didn’t do it?!?
      You should have been arrested, not them. You fool!

        Remember somebody else driving crazy and the guard rail might save you and your families life, would be nice to have the reflectors put back down from Duff Bottom to West End.

    Wow look like quite a crowd for 2pm and hour after curfew. Is this curfew enforced or can I stay out a few more hours rest of this week? Going home for 1pm is getting boring.

      A car just flipped, driver trapped. Persons too pass and not offer assistance. Tortola people are so unbelievable. Sure it was the person family and persons to offer assistance.

    Strange things usually happen on West end Road. I can recall a pick up back then did the same thing,, 1 of the 2 passengers died, the surviving passenger said he saw someone suddenly appear in the middle of the road, in trying to avoid that someone which turns out to be not rrally someone but someone's spirit, the vehicle toppled.. " The dead passenger was my friend"...It happen more than ones in a period of one month...So be very careful when travelling west end road,,

    It was a little after 1pm not after 2. So possibly curfew related to get home.
