STATEMENT BY MINISTER FOR TRANSPORTATION, WORKS AND UTILITIES, HONOURABLE KYE RYMER
ON THE DEATH OF MR. RYAN ADAMS OF SEA COW’S BAY
Fellow Virgin Islanders, Residents and Visitors.
I wish to extend condolences to the relatives and loved ones of Mr. Ryan Adams, 20, of Sea Cows Bay, who perished in a road traffic accident last night in the Duff’s Bottom area. May his soul Rest in Peace.
I am advised that the accident, which involved a motor scooter and a truck, is being investigated by the Royal Virgin Islands Police, and then, it is hoped, a clearer picture of the circumstances of the incident will be discerned.
Without prejudice to anyone involved, I wish to take this opportunity to renew my appeals to all motorists and road users to exercise caution when commuting on the Territory’s roads.
Please Obey All Road Signs and Regulations, try to be alert with regard to your surroundings and be considerate towards other road users.
We must remember at all times that once we get behind the wheel of a vehicle, we become responsible for the safety of not just ourselves, but our passengers, and other drivers and passengers on the road, including pedestrians.
Life is not perfect and things can go wrong, but by taking precautions, we reduce the likelihood of mishaps and avoid detrimental consequences.
I thank you.
