    If indeed that was the licence plate that was left behind, as the saying goes, "God don't (sic) like ugly".

    Be mindful that the owner of PQ-225 not going to make a report to the police that his vehicle is stolen. I hope bystanders can give a good description of the getaway driver

    The fool will read VINO and then call police to report that his vehicle was stolen. These drivers have no patience that's why we have so many accidents. They always quick to overtake. They have no consideration for pedestrians. Many times traffic stop because a big truck slowly making a turn and blocking a lane or an accident ahead then some jack@$$ just pullup and trying to overtake all of the other rides only to further block up traffic.

    I don’t see anyone on here voicing their concerns for occupants of the ambulance. These men and women who put their lives on the line every day to help us when we are in our greatest hour of need, but who cares about what happened to them? Come on VINO and BVI public show some compassion or at least pretend you care a little. Thanks to this man my friend is home now with injuries to his neck and back so what now??

      Good point. That is very unfortunate; BOTH for the individual AND for the ambulance service which I understand was already stretched thin.
