  1. He need to be caught and face life in prison better yet die I hate ppl to do this oh lord it’s a child u don’t have a heart u don’t have neices and nephew u don’t have a hold like wtf

  2. Omg how can you hit a child an look away smh not caring if the child is dead or alive kmt these ppl on these road dnt deserve license

    • It’s real sad how you knock down someone and didn’t even stop to see how they were doing.😡😡😡😡. I hope they are dealt with severely

  3. 🙏 for a full recovery to the young man and to his family.

    Well, after law enforcement/justice system didn’t charge the driver that hit the medical students for leaving the scene, now all the other drivers have no reason to think they have to stop after hitting someone.
    A damn shit hole country Antigua has become.

    • Exactly my thoughts @ Madness, because the previous hit and run cases wasn’t dealt with appropriately, I believe we’ll see a lot more of these incidents.

      Here’s hoping that this young man makes a full recovery and the driver is found and then incarcerated.

  4. The Courts need to throw the books at all drivers who do hit and runs. Regardless of that person and or whom he or say are related to. This is getting out of hand. This is the 3rd one in the past 2 months,Friars Hill Road,Creek Side and now Jonas Road.

  5. So I realize the driver is a POS for running off but is no one going to comment on how bad the roads are here with no sidewalks for pedestrians safety? Especially driving at night without street lights.

    • CIP was meant to help resolve this problem @ Nobody, that’s why the citizens of Antigua are constantly asking what was the 2 billion Dollars used for?

      Clearly it wasn’t to improve our roads and street lighting. Tarl!

  6. Prayers for this youngster, 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 for a clean recovery.
    God strengthen his family and allow justice to be done to the person who did this
