              @ wize up, this is over reach, the person was simply asking a question, yes he might live here for over 20 years but may not be familiar with the area in terms of name. There are BVILanders living on Tortola who have never gone to Anegada or Jost Van Dyke. It’s people like you who pretend to love this place so much, destroying it every day, little by little but go right ahead and keep it up.

          Come on people, stop! Someone lost their life...
          Probably the individual who’s enquiring about the location of the incident knows the hill, but perhaps forgot the name of the hill or is unaware of its name. As for the individual who asked the location, It’s ok to ask a question, but in the future please know when and how to ask it (please don’t be sarcastic, if you were).
          Come on man!, the family members are hurting; would you like these comments, if it were you? Let’s not only act like adults, but be one and stop supplementing to the family’s grieve.
          Thanks and enjoy the rest of your day. Condolences to the family members and friends sorry for your lost.

      I ain't running off the road for nobody.

      I've pulled far left for both vehicles and motorbikes/scooters and they just kept going without slowing to acknowledge it was a close call.

      Once I properly on my side...we going to hit.

      Why would you come with names when no officials give the decease name publicly. This was not call for at this time.
