PORT PURCELL, Tortola, VI- A woman was reportedly flung from a vehicle during an accident at Port Purcell around 4:40 P.M. today, February 13, 2018.

The woman thrown from the vehicle appears to be injured and is still lying on the road.

    Ban these vehicles man. They are recklessly not wearing seatbelts I’m sick of them. No one would have gotten thrown out... not only scooters get in senseless accidents.

    Where in port Purcell are you driving that fast? Plus if she was wearing a seatbelt she wouldn’t not have been thrown out. Car drivers are just as bad as scooter drivers.

    How fast was she going? Are not motorists and passengers required to wear seat belts in the VI? Why was she not wearing a seat belt? Will she be ticketed for not wearing a seat belt, assuming that she was not? Was she the driver or passenger? Why do drivers speed in the VI again? What is their hurry? Why are there are so many vehicle accidents in the VI? Does the VI have the highest number of accidents per capita in the region, the world?

      They were not going fast when I saw them. They had just past me as I was trying to back out from by Fort Garden Center. It appears that their brakes may have failed (or the gas pedal got stuck) as one of the ladies who was in the vehicle said that it just would not stop. Hope they are both OK.

    Give m e a break. If you are black and know the police you can have black windows, talk on cell phone, not wear safety belts, speed weave in and out and stop anywhere to pick up passengers. Talk to the courts an see how many whites pay tickets and how many blacks!!

      Maybe because whites do more crap on the road.

        Seems so. I'm brown. Do I get partial favouritism? I would like tints too. I wear a seat belt. But my concern is she's lying on the ground a while.
