WEST END, Tortola, VI- A woman and her husband are counting their blessings after managing to escape unscathed when the vehicle they were in turned turtle in the area of Towers on the West End of Tortola on Friday, November 8, 2019.

It is unclear at this time how the mishap occurred; however, the vehicle, a pickup truck, ended up off the road with wheels up close to some large rocks.

One of the occupants of the vehicle later took to social media to express her gratitude to the “Most High” for sparing her life on her birthday.

Virgin Islands News Online (VINO) will bring more information as it becomes available.

          Iyma that’s the ignorance of them but leave them alone, don’t even try to change their mentality because you will fail but one thing for sure, God sits high and he looks down low.

      Some different level of stupidity be displayed with your statement.
      How does a person’s nationality have to with them almost dying?
      You would think that attitudes would have changed after Irma and I’m sure you were one of the first ones praying to the most high to save you from impending death to you and your family.
      Smh let’s hope none of your family members are never in a situation like this and someone make a like yours.
      God bless the ‘ des Wirgin Islands.

        Behavioural habits are ofttimes cultural and
        can determine the likelihood of an outcome.
        Like it or not it is fact. Change of habits could be a solution. Denial and pontificating is chupidness and changes nothing toward positivity..

    Glory to God for spared life. The devil sought to take you all lives, but God had another plan. Give him praise and glory! If you all are not saved, it is a good time to surrender it all to Jesus and be baptized in the name of Jesus.

    Maybe the driver was going much too fast and lost control of the vehicle. So happy everyone was not seriously injured.
