The family of two of the children who were killed in a horrific vehicular accident near the Gros Islet Fire Station some nine years ago says they are no longer seeking justice, but compensation for their loss.

Mr John Phillip who has been at the forefront of the matter on behalf of the family says he has been hopelessly seeking the assistance of any local attorney who would be brave enough to take on the case.

At the time of the accident, the children, who were on their way home after attending a church service, were standing near the road. Eyewitness accounts of the incident revealed that a truck spun out of control before coming into contact with the children.

The truck is believed to have been owned by a prominent lawyer. Mr Philip believes that the driver did not have a valid licence nor was the vehicle insured at the time of the accident.

He says the road to justice has been frustrating. In recounting the incident, Mr Philip says the ordeal that the family has had to endure has been anything but easy.
Mr Philip has described the treatment meted out to him and his family as unfair.
