ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The morning today, November 29, 2022, did not start too positive for two drivers who became involved in an accident on the busy Administration Drive in the heart of Road Town.

According to reports, an SUV collided with a Safari vehicle just after 8:00am.

From all indications, the SUV was about to head into Admin Drive from the Banco Popular/Mill Mall area when it hit the Safari taxi that was heading in the direction of Cyril B. Romney Tortola Pier Park.

No one was injured.

Traffic was reduced to one lane for close to an hour before police arrived to conduct their investigations and had the vehicles removed.

    What a welcome tour to the BVI if tourist was on board the safari. SUV should be charged forthwith. Thought the hospital was in the opposite direction, what's the rush?

      More likely the safari was at fault, there is a stop sign in his direction. So many cars (especially taxis and safari buses!) ignore it!

        @west you must be a moran or you just can't comprehend when you read, the stop sign is for the SUV not the safari.

        The SUV was coming out of the BancoPopular road, and completely ignored the stop sign like so many people are doing.
        In this case the safari bus was in the right....which is funny cuz it's usually not the case.

      The police were asked more than once by officials to Patrol ( Foot Patrol ) that area especially when ship / s are in. The only one we see is Callwood when he is on duty...Police need to do better. With a force more than 300 strong. Not good. When the force were half that size police were every where foot patrolling. Now you seeing the vehicles not the officers.. Where are all these police?

    From the pic it looks like that junction that passes alongside Noel Lloyd Park and if so, that's a dangerous piece of roadway as the drivers don't seem to understand the 'Yield' system of traffic. They seem to think that all traffic has to let out everybody on that road which is false. It's a stop and go system and anyone with a bit of common sense should understand it. They seem to think as long as you are on that strip of road you can just drive right out into thru traffic and that is wrong!

      I believe you are wrong. The vehicles on Admin Drive DO NOT have right of way. They have STOP signs in both directions to give traffic from Noel Lloyd Park the right of way....

    You guys cant see the SUV is in the wrong. That SUV is too far on the right instead of the middle or far left of the road. Further more that's the road coming from Banco Popular going into the Admin Drive. also you can clearly see that the bus was already ahead, and the SUV still hit it behind the door. So now suppose the bus wanted to make a right turn to go in to the Mill Mall how in the world would he make his left turn, if the SUV already is on his side to enter?
