Five persons were injured when a sports utility vehicle (SUV) collided with a utility pole along the Roseau-Marigot Highway Monday afternoon, an official said.
Emergency services received the report of the accident at 4:51 p.m.
One person – Jonas Volty of La Croix Maingot who is about 30 years old – sustained serious injuries and was transported by ambulance to hospital, the official told St. Lucia News Online.
“He was experiencing pain in his spine and could not be moved without spinal integrity being compromised,” the official said, adding that Volty was in the SUV “trunk compartment” when professional help arrived.
The other four persons sustained minor injuries and were transported to hospital via private means, in stable condition, the official added.
