ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Two men were rushed to Peebles Hospital sometime after 6:00 p.m. today January 1, 2015 after the motorcycle they were on collided with a truck.

According to eyewitnesses, who were in the vicinity of the Craft Alive area where the accident occurred, the men on the motorcycle collided with a truck that was coming out of the nearby parking lot. Only one of the men was reportedly wearing a helmet.

"One get head injuries because his head hit one of the glass on the truck and the other look like he injured his legs," said one eyewitness.

The two were subsequently rushed to Peeble Hospital. This is the second road accident this news site has already reported on for 2015.

        @ its 2015, don't stress yourself over their spelling of "these" because they do it on purpose. I heard some laughing about how it irritates people. They really are a waste of your time.

    @ its 2015. Before you correct anyone's writing, you might want to check yours. No one is perfect, especially me. Let me point out your errors so you can get off your high horse. Let's start with (its 2015) it should be (it's). You started your sentence with a small (w) in the word (would). You have a run on sentence by never putting a period after the word (please) then you repeated the word please when you wrote (your english is so please). You then went on to write (yow how stupid do you sound) with no question mark at the end, when it should have read ( Do you know how stupid you sound?) I don't need any of you so called perfectionist's to correct me either because I am only pointing out that we all make mistakes.

    Why is it comments turn into a grammar lesson and debate? Point is everyone understood what the person wrote and was able to interpret correctly. Instead of agreeing to a positive comment and maybe offering to assist someone to improve the first comment right after had to be critical. People for society to improve we must stop behaving like this.

    As it relates to the article, the real topic, trust everyone is OK and be more vigilant.
