The police are currently investigating two separate traffic accidents which occurred on the southern side of the island over the last two days.

According to a press release from the police’s Office of Strategic Communications (STRATCOM),one of the unfortunate events took place Thursday night in the vicinity of Our Lady of the Valley Anglican Church, while the other took place Friday morning on Valley Road near the old Caribbean Radio Lighthouse.

The first incident involved 24-year-old Amertha Singh who was travelling from north to south at around 11:30 pm on Thursday.

The Potters woman was driving a green Hyundai Getz motorcar A30187 when she reportedly lost control of the vehicle and collided into the church’s fence and a mahogany tree, causing extensive damage to the vehicle.

Police said Singh was taken to the Mount St John’s Medical Center (MSJMC) where it was determined that her left shoulder had been dislocated. She was kept for observation.

In the other incident, Stacy-Ann Roberts of Cades Bay was the driver of a white Honda Edix motor car, A30613, which was traveling from south to north when she claimed that she got distracted after a bottle of water fell on some documents in her bag which had been left open.

As a result she lost control of the vehicle which then ran off the road and overturned.

The driver and with three passengers – including a four-year-old and an eight-year-old – were transported to the MSJMC via the Emergency Medical Services (EMS), complaining of neck and chest pains.

Doctors at the hospital said their injuries were not life-threatening.

However, Roberts’ vehicle also sustained extensive damage.
