ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – A three-month old baby was among persons involved in an accident that Virgin Islands News Online reported on last Sunday morning, April 12, 2015.

A sports utility vehicle (SUV) had ended up on its side following an accident at Brandywine Bay, Tortola on Saturday night, April 11, 2015.

According to the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF), an officer of Fire and Rescue Services notified Police that they had responded to a 911 call at Brandywine Bay where the occupants of an overturned vehicle had been taken to Peebles Hospital, having been removed from the vehicle by drivers in the vicinity.

“The female driver and two other occupants, including a three-month-old male, were medically examined and immediately discharged with no injuries,” a press release from the RVIPF stated.

It is still unclear what were the circumstances surrounding the accident, but according to the RVIPF, the vehicle sustained severe fire damage.

Other accidents

According to police, Police received reports on two other road traffic collisions on Saturday evening, April 11, 2015. All of the accidents, it said, resulted in minor injuries to the occupants.

“In the first collision, reported to Police around 4:30pm, the father of a six-year-old boy stated that his son was injured in the leg by a vehicle. Inquiries indicated that the injuries were sustained while a taxi van was reversing onto Little Dix Hill. The leg injuries appeared to be minor.”
