ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Scooter rider Kawa G. Williams has reportedly been left in a critical yet stable condition after what is now his second major scooter accident within two years.

Williams on May 18, 2020, suffered life-threatening and traumatic injuries in a Fort Hill scooter accident which saw the young man suffering a fractured skull with crippling damage to the ligaments in his right knee.

Fist accident required surgery in Columbia

The extent of the injuries; which required surgeries that could not be performed in the Virgin Islands, had mobilised family and friends to call for prayers and raise urgent funds via donations and a GoFundMe campaign in an effort to get the young man walking again.

Following the accident, Williams had to be air-lifted to Columbia for extensive surgeries, with NHI reportedly covering 80% of the cost.

While in Columbia in 2020, Williams had received extensive knee surgeries and repairs to fractured bones in his face, including a brain surgery where doctors had to insert a titanium plate to protect his skull.

Williams left ‘Critical’ in latest accident

Family and friends on Saturday, January 29, 2021, were therefore left in disbelief to learn that Williams had once again suffered another critical scooter accident.

“Y'all help me pray for my son who was in another scooter accident yesterday. He is in critical but stable condition,” said his mother Dee Hazel in a Facebook update on, January 29, 2022.

While no further details on how and where the accident occurred, our newsroom was informed of a motorcycle accident at Beef Island on Friday, January 28, 2022.

Our news center will bring more information as it becomes available.

    at the time I stated that others and myself are the ones paying for his and other recklessness on scooters with only themselves to blame, has he even contributed to the NHI fund and now we allmust pay again, time NHI was restructured or done away with and let people pay for their own medical care at a reasonable copst as its due to these incidents that healthcare has skyrocketed with the NHI

      You would think right? He just got messed up, have steel plate in his head from the previous accident, had to be flown off island to get life saving surgery that could not be performed here and he came right back to doing the same thing. Just say he have to be flown off island again, where is the thousands of dollars going to come from this time?

    It is so unfair for NHI to be paying for these reckless don't care individuals medical bills. I read earlier the struggles that NHI is presently having, but with these amount of Motorcycle accidents i am sure this is costing NHI Millions. What is the Government doing. NOTHING. I am therefore putting this forward to NHI management the Board and the Government, if these bikes are not license and Insured these individuals should not be covered.

    I am a mother. I have sons. They put us through a lot. Don't give up on him. I hope that he comes to his senses this time around. Keep warning him, keep praying for him, keep pleading the blood over his life. The enemy is stealing our young men before their time. We must wake up as a nation and pray for them. People of God, we must put a stop to the destruction the enemy is having on our young men lives.

      These young sons need to stop being a nuisance to society with their loud mufflers and reckless riding. We are sick of it. Pray for your sons, yes. Train your sons in the way that they should go as well. The lack of sympathy that is sensed is just frustration. We are tired of the behavior of these young ‘men’ on bikes. Parents seem not to be bothered by their behavior. We reap what we sow.

    Motorcycle/scooter drivers should be excluded from NHI medical coverage. Swim on your own risk at the beach and ride at your own risk on land!!

    In my old school slang- he less on a scooter. Yuh geh liss out once, i can understand, but you get liss out twice- you just less my youth. Either walk, or catch a ride but no more 2 wheels for you. Whats even more sad is the taxpayers gotta pay for that lessness. Man he need to be liss out for good and call it a day.

    Treat everyone fairly, in a way that you like to be treated . Be respectful, aware ,and thoughtful of others . I rode motorcycles when I was younger, did a few crazy things too, however there were not as many vehicles or other motorcycles on the road as we do have now . Young men, I am appealing to you , please be more respectful, responsible and careful.

    Raise minimum age to 21 or better still- 25. The government has to make a change because the current system just isn’t working. The negligent riders are kids, wanting to show off to their friends, wanting to race, wanting to pop wheelies, they have no regard for life either their own or others, there is no option other than for the government to take control of this situation and change the rules. When re-licensing each year the scooter should have to pass a maximum decibel test too, again this is another factor that helps them show off (for some reason kids think it makes their glorified hair dryer sound cooler). Please VIP, break the mould - do a survey to cover your backs if you have to.

    Just today, a young man on a scooter passed our cars, stopped at the red light before Rite Way heading east. THIS FOOL WAS STANDING STRAIGHT UP ON HIS BIKE THE ENTIRE TIME. If something has happened to him, I would have no sympathy at all. Does he think this is a joke? No freaking brains at all!
