ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Information reaching Virgin Islands News Online indicate that a female driver suffered a whiplash injury to her neck after a jeep rammed into the vehicle she was driving in East End last evening, Saturday December 10, 2011.

Though not confirmed by police, eyewitnesses’ accounts revealed that after the accident, which occurred after 8 p.m., the driver and passenger of the two-door Suzuki jeep which hit the woman’s vehicle, jumped out and ran off.

The woman was taken to Peebles hospital, sources told this news agency, where a neck brace was fitted. She was released shortly after.

The abandoned jeep was seen towed to the Road Town Police station. Attempts to get information from the Road Town and East End police stations were unsuccessful, so far.

However, VINO will provide more details as they become available.

    If the police were able to link into the Vehicle Licencing Departments database they should quickly be able to find out who the owner of the vehicle is.

      This should be done years ago the police are way behind and they have alot of catching up to do. When I watch COPS on tv I wonder why police officers here are not as equiped in regards to the techology the have in their possession. We constantly have to send stuff away to get tested we need to have our own things set up in place for that. I honetly figured that these police officer watch enough tv to see what goes on in the states. Right now more and more crime are being commited and the Virgin Islands was never like this. I can remember you could leave the door to you house unlock and no one would bother to go in. NOW everything changing parents needs to be more involved because when a child see another child do something and get away with it even after being caught you know another child will follow. We are being call "Natures Little Secret" well our secret is on longer safe to keep.

    And now the owner of the vehicle will say it was stolen. I too was involved in a hit and run accident. How can people be so evil to run away and leave someone that may be seriously injured?

    Nobody seems to want to be accountable for their actions these days. WHY would any driver (who made an HONEST mistake and just had an accident) run? Was the car stolen? Was he/she drunk? Was he/she driving without a license or driving without insurance? Just sickening. What a COWARD! I hope the lady will be OK and wish her a speedy recovery.
