ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - With the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, motorists and pedestrians alike have been reminded to be extra cautious to avoid accidents similar or worse to that which occurred in the vicinity of the Digicel Headquarters in Road Town earlier today, December 17, 2013.

It is not exactly clear how a vehicle collided with a pickup truck but, based on an eye witness report, the truck allegedly was reversing when it collided with another vehicle, causing it to slam into a nearby tree.
