Crash hot spot in Lilliput, St.James

Two cousins, David Buchanan and Ronaldo Blake of Bobman Hill died when the motorcycle they were riding on collided with a Toyota Hiace bus in Lilliput St.James, on Saturday night.

Residents say the deaths could have been avoided if there were road markings and traffic signs. Ronaldo Blake was a 17 year old student at the Spot Valley High School, his 25 year old cousin David Buchanan was the first rider.

The bus was travelling from Falmouth to Rose Hall

The accident has encouraged renewed calls for a traffic light at the intersection of the main road at Bobman Hill.

Member of Parliament and Tourism Minister Ed Bartlett says talks are underway with the National Works Agency to have a traffic light installed in that area of Lilliput. 

Twenty four persons have been killed in traffic accidents in St. James since the start of the year.
