Update on Bushy Park Mishap: Sept 2nd incident hurt more vehicles than people
I called a friend of mine who is an avid motor sports fan, and who is, at the time of this post (1653 hrs) at Bushy Park. Details are still sketchy as I could barely hear him over the sound of the passing race cars. From what I could understand, sometime around 9 AM, a ten-wheeler dump truck rolled down a hill (to the left of the spectator’s stand) and injured eight people, two of them suffered serious injuries. The ten-wheeler also struck a few motor vehicles on the way down.
The Barbados Free Press also was concerned –

Update: Barbados Underground says?
?BU understand that a truck was left in gear with the handbrake up. it rolled down a hill but a person in the passenger seat was able to steer it away from danger.?
Well, The Bajan Reporter was finally able to hook up some photos and show what did and didn’t happen – in all, I’d say Bajans were damn lucky this time around!
