Driver dozed off before crashing into post along Castries/VF highway

A driver of a vehicle is counting his lucky stars after the vehicle he was driving crashed into a utility post, splitting it down the middle of the front.

The accident occurred yesterday afternoon along the Castries/Vieux Fort highway, near the Saint Jude Hospital.

According to reports, the driver, a businessman, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle, dosed off for a few seconds when he ran off the road.

He suffered minor injuries to his hand.

His staff feels that their boss may have been very tired when he crashed into the utility post, due to his regular travels from Vieux Fort to Castries and back.

Just about an hour earlier there was another vehicular accident about 100 metres from where the businessman ran off the road.

Over the past few months, there has been an increase in the number of vehicular accidents in Vieux Fort, which is of concern to the Vieux Fort police and fire personnel.
