    Why so many concrete truck accidents ? DMV need to make sure these drivers qualified to drive these vehicles and companies should do regular drug and alcohol test.

    Glad no one was hurt because these big trucks can do a lot of damage.

    So why are the flow, Digicel and cct lines so low? Since those lines been going up they have been getting lower and lower. That is a main road, those lines should not be that low for this to happen.

      @ Citizen, he knocked down the POLE and the lines came tumbling down after that. He did not snag a line.
