SPANISH TOWN, Virgin Gorda, VI – A driver escaped serious injuries after his vehicle’s front left tire exploded, making him lose control and ran into a tree on Tuesday April 17, 2012 on Lee Road, Virgin Gorda (VG).

According to Diane Drayton, the Police Public Relations Officer, the one vehicular accident happened around 11:45 a.m. in the vicinity of the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) campus on the island.

She disclosed that the driver had complained of head and chest pains, which prompted officers to take him to the Iris O’Neal Clinic. But he was later transported to Peebles Hospital, and released the following day – April 18, 2012.

The driver’s license and insurance were updated, Drayton added.
