    So, this accident happened an hour ago. Traffic is completely blocked past Warwick Academy an hour later?

    This is pathetic.

    • sage says:

      The traffic collision investigators had to confirm the injured cyclist was a motorcyclist, I’m guessing the scooter is the pedestrian, just be thankful you are safe.

  2. I think it would make common sense if they had a police officer dirrecting traffic from Crow Lane to Harbour Road instead of letting traffic drive ALL the way to Trimingham Hill roundabout to be told to turn around and go back Harbour Road!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Like I said COMMON SENSE

      Stop crying troll.

    • Rhonda says:

      that’s not common sense…it would be nice, sure…but that’s a waste of an additional police officer..cause that will mean having an officer at the crow lane roundabout and the trimingham roundabout…which makes very little sense when there are not enough police officers as is…nope…spare officers need to be on the team finding the gunmen..yup

      • But there were two at de bottom of Strawberry Hill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        Dreamer

        • WarwickBoy says:

          And one sitting in a Police jeep in the parking area just before Lovers Lane on Harbor Rd.

    • Lead By Example says:

      You speak of things you no nothing about…common sense.

    • Jim says:

      Big deal, from one roundabout to the other and back lol..

  3. Vamos says:

    Any police around? Or are they at GLAZE getting breakfast?

  4. colourless says:

    One bike is obviously on the wrong side of the road. Overtaking, perhaps??

  5. aceboy says:

    It is now 10.15. Traffic still solid to Warwick Academy.

    So ridiculous.

  6. John G says:

    If it is not life threatening just mark the rods and let the traffic flow. Return later to take measurements.

    • Jim says:

      So simple, maybe you should take over the island’s accident investigations lol..

      You don’t know WHEN they determined the injuries to be non-life threatening, they may have needed surgery to survive..

      Now you just focus on doing YOUR job and let the trained professionals do theirs.

  7. Sandy says:

    John G has hit the nail on the head. But you know that common sense is very uncommon.

  8. yamon says:

    im jus confused, cuz it’s sayin it was a pedestrian and a cyclist…but why is there two bikes? doesnt make sense.

  9. Terry says:

    Well you know what they say about a “Picture speaks a thousand words”.

    • Terry says:

  10. Smile says:
