CABINET NOTES:

The Attorney General reported to Cabinet on the accident which took place on Friars Hill Road on the Morning of Sunday October 23rd, 2022.

Increased patrols to catch speeding drivers are likely to be instituted, and the Parliament may have to raise the amounts which accident victims can receive from Insurance Companies.

The Minister of Health provided an update on Andre Simon the cyclist who was hit by a motorist several months ago.

He was flown to Texas by Air Ambulance to a Hospital that specializes in repairing neurological damage to accident victims.

The report is that he has improved since leaving Antigua; he has opened his eyes and showed signs of consciousness.

  1. Who is writing these so called articles😕?

    I’m just gonna block and delet Antigua Newsroom because this isn’t it AT ALL

    SMFH

  2. The Laws of Antigua does not provide for compensation to Accident victim when the perpetrator is finally convicted. In some case 4-5 years after the fact. A claim for compensation must be precipitated by the conviction of the perpetrator . The laws of Antigua allows only one year to make such claim from Insurance companies (if the driver is in fact insured). If they have no money then the victims are just screwed and need to take the injury or the family; the death of a loved one to God in Prayer. Stop the postering rubbish.

  3. Our Minister of Health must now take drastic action and introduce the harshest measures on speeding and careless drivers immediately.

    The innocent have to be protected, or the authorities aren’t fit for purpose!

    If bad drivers are not heeding the safety of others when taking to the road, then large fines or lengthy jail sentences are a must.

    COME ON MINISTER, GROW A PAIR …

  4. I want to know what in the world caused this accident? Was it really a Krazzy driver?
    Were the two victims high or drunk or had in earphones?

    Something just doesn’t add up.
    Consider the time of morning this happened, consider the surroundings, place most likely dark and quiet. Now you’re walking along the roadway. A normal person can hear a vehicle coming a mile off, they can see a vehicle light approaching a mile off.
    Something just not right with this one, just saying, even if the driver was flying, some piece missing in this one yah……

    • Easy to judge.
      I know the boy personally. He’s a non drinker. Heard the girl is a non drinker too. They were attending a university party with their college mates. The girl felt unwell, so they were crossing the road to the store to get something on the opposite side. There were other friends also with them, not just these two.
      They are the ones who reported that the car was over speeding, and that there were no street lights.

  5. THREE THINGS AT PLAY
