HARRIGAN'S ESTATE, Tortola, VI- Persons travelling to Road Town via Joe's Hill, on the main island of Tortola, have been made to use alternative routes following an accident moments ago, November 16, 2015.

According to reports, the accident occurred around 7:20am as a pickup heading in the direction of Road Town and a canter truck heading in the opposite direction tried to negotiate a sharp turn near the top of the hill. 

No one was injured but the two vehicles are blocking the road, forcing motorists to turn back and using alternative routes.

    Too many persons taking this corner without acknowledging that he or she must hold his or her side. Too many times I see vehicles just taking a wide curve as if the entire curve is theirs. Let them put in some line markers or widen the curve. It can be widened on the hillside.

      Is it your land? Why you don't give up some of yours? The Harrigans already given up more than their fair share.

      The corner clearly needs widening or something. The inside part is too steep. That's why people take the corner wide. If it is wet it's even more of a problem.

    Clearly the red pickup is not on its side

    Every vehicle should have a working "Horn" in them. People need to blow their horns repeatedly to let others know that they are coming, especially around blind and narrow corners. There's a number of ignorant people that do not have any manners who do not blow back their Horns.
    To be on the safe side, like someone mentioned in another comment "Hold Your Corner". Stay as much on your side as you possible can to avoid an accident.

    That's a norm to the point of ridiculous now where people take a corner coming on your side of the road as they believe you have bionic vision.
