Two male occupants aged, 23 and 18 involved in a vehicular accident along the Grand Anse main road on Tuesday morning are nursing injuries at the St. George’s General Hospital after the vehicle they were traveling in ran off the road.
Officer in Charge of the Community Relations Department of the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF), Assistant Superintendent (ASP) Sylvan Mc Intyre confirmed that the lawmen are aware of the accident.
According to ASP Mc Intyre, the vehicle involved was a Silver Suzuki Escudo with licensed plate number PO 112 that was traveling from St George’s to Grand Anse when it ran off the road, hit the wall at The Fall Edge.
The accident took place sometime between 6:45 and 7:00 a.m.
ASP Mc Intyre reported that when the vehicle hit the wall it went “airborne 30-40 feet (in the trees) and plunged 50-80 feet below” onto the ground.
He said the two male occupants who are from the Grand Anse Housing Scheme “received multiple injuries ranging from fractures and lacerations”.
“…The cause (of the accident) is still undetermined but slippery wet road condition and speeding could be two possible factors”, he told THE NEW TODAY.
