Prime Minister Honourable Allen M. Chastanet has sent condolences to the Government and People of Dominica following a vehicular accident on Sunday in that island where five young men lost their lives.

The incident occurred in Vieille Case, in the northern part of Dominica, when the vehicle reportedly plunged off a cliff.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Dominica at this time. Dominica is our sister isle and we in Saint Lucia have gone through something very similar and we know how difficult this can be for a small country,” noted Prime Minister Chastanet.

“On behalf of the people of Saint Lucia I express our immense sadness and extend our condolences to the families of the young men and to Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, who is also the MP for the area.

Prime Minister Chastanet recalls that on November 10th 2011, the entire country of Saint Lucia was thrown into mourning after a bus of passengers returning from a funeral near Morne Sion, Choiseul veered off a cliff into the sea reportedly killing 19 people.
