FORT HILL, Tortola, VI- Sometime after 5:00 PM today, Monday June 26, 2017 there was yet another motor scooter accident.

While details of the mishap are unclear, eyewitnesses told us that a motor scooter ended up damaged after it appeared to have collided with another vehicle.

It is unclear the condition of the driver of the vehicle or if the scooter rider sustained injuries.

The accident happened next to Qwomar Trading Limited, at the bottom of Fort Hill, on the main island of Tortola.

Within the past year the Virgin Islands has been rocked by road accidents, many of them involving motor scooters.

If more information becomes available we will update our readers.

    Hope everyone involved is OK...The troubling part is that inspire all the blogs, the talk shows. and street talk about their reckless, careless and dangerous riding. We still see them up on down through town high day with no helmet and speeding...

    They need to stop parking on the road at the side of qwomar. That's a serious blind spot

      I agree with you SMH. Who ever hit dislike on your comment did it by accident or they are clueless about how parking around a place like that can be dangerous.

    Parking has nothing to do with the way this young man was riding, seriously, I don't know who in God's world he was trying to impress. I hope everything is fine with him but I also hope he learn a lesson.
