Two women airlifted after car crash in Abaco


Tribune Staff Reporter


TWO women have been airlifted to New Providence after a car accident in Abaco left them with injuries.

ASP Philip Davis said sometime around 10.28pm on Saturday, police received a call about an accident at Sandy Point.

“We got a call of an accident in that area as a result officers responded.

“Upon their arrival, they met a Dodge Ram truck and a grey Honda Accord which was occupied by the two females,” he said.

“They were transported to the clinic. They received injuries. The truck was also occupied by four other persons.”

The women, ages 29 and 30, were taken to the Marsh Harbour clinic then flown to the capital where they are said to be in stable condition.

Last month, Abaco mother Britney Edgecombe was on her way to work on the morning of September 9 when she was injured in a car accident.

She was taken to New Providence in critical condition.

Although her family successfully fundraised enough money to repair her spinal cord at a US hospital and cover her rehabilitation costs, the 33-year-old died earlier this month.

As news of Saturday’s accident spread on Facebook, many raised concern of the number of dangerous crashes happening on Abaco.

According to ASP Davis, police are always concerned about any accident.

“This only comes to the highlight because certain people report things on social media, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s an increase,” he said.

There are a lot of lunatics on the roads of Abaco and zero traffic police. The danger on the roads is escalating at a furious pace both in the towns and on the highways and has become markedly worse over the last few years, just another example of the lack of GOOD governance in the Country and a police department bloated with useless, more often than not corrupt, idiots. Don't kid yourselves that the police are concerned, they could not care less about accidents and fatalities, unless they can find half a joint in one of the vehicles involved.

Do you know what incompetence is? It is clearly defined by the inability to fix an air conditioner in a government office where the windows do not open after 14 months. which then causes the said office to only operate for a few hours a week.
