JOE'S HILL, Tortola, VI- Sometime after 9:00 AM this morning January 30, 2018 a Small SUV was seen flipped on its side in the area of Joe’s Hill, on the main island of Tortola.

It is unclear what led to the accident that contributed to traffic delays in the middle of the morning commute; however, there is a bad patch of road in the left lane heading uphill where the accident occurred and drivers tend to squeeze in on the good lane even while traffic is oncoming.

It is also not known if anyone was injured, or how many persons were in the vehicle.

Police and wrecker services were on the location to clear the roadway.

Because of bad roads following two powerful Hurricanes that have destroyed much of the Virgin Islands' road networks, there have been many accidents, and vehicles have been stuck in huge potholes on the roads.

    Please rep for the 6th, could you please get PWD or someone to fix the road between Qwomar and the garbage dump . That stretch of road is deplorable and frustrating to commute on. Please work on it please.
    PS please get department of waste management to address the garbage issues in that area
