BEEF ISLAND, VI – A number of persons had to be rushed to the Peebles Hospital following an accident that took place today February 15, 2015 along the road just outside of the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island.

According to reports reaching our news room, the accident which occurred around 6:30 AM involved two vehicles: one which was leaving the airport parking lot and heading west and the other heading east.

Persons who were on the ground said that it would appear that the vehicle headed east might have been going at a fast rate given the skid mark it left on the road. It would appear too that the driver exiting the parking lot was not exercising due care and attention at the time.

This news site sought confirmation of the accident from Royal Virgin Islands Police Force Public Relations Officer Diane Drayton who said that she would get back to us. However, up to post time this news site had not received her confirmation.

We will bring you more details as they become available.

      On the other hand, we all must come together to protect each other with the aim or keeping these incidents to a minimum.

        There is no alternative to simple common sense. It's an open road, people need to stop driving like f..king idiots! You have a clear view of traffic from all angles when on that road. People just need to pay attention and take their damn time.

    I was up there walking yesterday and I was terrified at the speed some of the vehicles were traveling up there. The long stretch of road with nothing to curb speeding is an accident waiting to happen. Something must be done.

    Why is it that the spokesperson for the RVIPF never knows what is going on and NEVER gets back to the press? Why is this person being paid?
