  1. First off, I hope the gent is ok.

    Secondly, Antigua must be the only country in the world where the road safety man mash up the car in a ditch. It’s a complete waste of time spending money on a road safety squad. Put money in to making the roads safe then patrol them!!! Joke

  2. This crash can only be as a result of speeding.
    I’m sure he has his personal vehicle which he cherished and would not have driven it so carelessly to wreck as has done to this government vehicle.
    Hope this one is thoroughly investigated and prosecuted when found at fault.

  3. Kudos to the quick actions of citizens on the scene who called emergency services, rendered first aid to the policeman. They should all receive appropriate recognition for their quick thinking and performing their civic duty.

    Separately, I hope the policeman is prosecuted for SPEEDING and investigations proove if he was using his cellphone while driving and if he was using the govt. vehicle for genuine, ‘on the clock’ police business, or was on a personal side-visit or errand – these investigations may require additional charges, & likely disciplinary actions be taken.

  4. Another police vehicle destroyed. And then they will complain that they do not have enough vehicles to patrol the roads. Makes you wonder, can the officer be held liable for this?
