CRUSHER HILL, Virgin Gorda, VI – Sometime this afternoon August 1, 2017 a truck transporting a heavy earth moving equipment (excavator) along Crusher Hill almost careened off the hill.

Eye witnesses noted that the driver apparently lost control of the truck which resulted in the excavator falling off the truck.

Police and other authorities were summoned to the scene and quickly stepped into gear to free up the flow of traffic along the hill.

Up to press time, no one was reportedly injured but the driver must have been counting his lucky stars.

    Glad to hear no one was harmed but again another example of unsafe driving on, ironically right nearnto where the founder of the company was crushed.

    The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Young people act like dare devils on the land and sea and break every law of the land if they can and to what end? Slow down young people slow down, remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth. Much prayers going up for you all but you have to do your part.

    That is why those equipment should be moved within certain hours. They should not be moved when there are other vehicles on the road. That thing could have fallen on another vehicle. Lord help us. Glad it wasn't nothing worse.

    Those things are suppose to be secure on the trucks, tie down, I don't see no belt straps. The other day I driving and a trailer had a lot of cement bags at the back and not one was secure. These people waiting until something bad happen.
