Five Dead: Early Morning Fatal Accident in Tobago

Accident that claimed five lives earlier this Morning on the
Claude Noel Highway at the Spring Garden Intersection

It has only been two days into full Carnival activities in Tobago and already one accident has claimed multiple lives.

There was a fatal two car smash up on the Claude Noel Highway in the early hours of this morning. Reports from the Scarborough Police Traffic Branch were that Duke was driving a maroon Mazda 3 station wagon east, along the Claude Noel Highway when he overtook a vehicle and collided head-on with a green Lancer driven by Stewart, a ward attendant at the Scarborough General Hospital. The collision took place at the spring garden intersection just around the traffic light  instantly killing 5 persons and sending some airborne.  One person's head was said to be completely severed while emergency personnel had to fetch others out of the near by bushes.  

The call has once again gone out to patrons of parties and persons taking part in Carnival activities to observe the road laws. Designate a driver, drive within the speed limit and obey all traffic rules, so that events like these would not repeat its self. 

With three more days remaining to revel, Tobagodaily is also calling for a beef up in patrols on the Highway of Tobago. Tobagodaily would have observed last night that there were no highway patrols especially in known accident prone areas.

Tobagodaily would like the officers to note that part of policing is prevention, and as such highway patrols can prevent obnoxious and irresponsible drivers from causing life taking events like these.
