Two vehicles collided outside the Rubis gas station on the Bentick Square on Monday morning; luckily no one was hurt.

A garbage truck, PP613, belonging to Bullock Trucking and driven by Harrison Hector of Calder, collided with a Toyota Granvia Taxi, H7877, driven and owned by Aaron {{more}}“Ed” Delpesche of Chateaubelair.

Delpesche said that he had just finished taking gas and was exiting the gas station at around 10 a.m. when the truck hit him.

“I was coming out and I see the truck and he (driver of truck) mash brakes and can’t stop. He told me he nah give me right away,” explained Delpesche, who said that all he wants is for his vehicle to be fixed.

“I just want a brand new door; car accidents happen, so I can’t beat up myself,” he said.

Meanwhile, Hector said that from looking at the position of the vehicles, “you can see just how the thing happen.”

He said that he was driving into Kingstown and, “just in the wink of an eye, that vehicle come out and I never looking for that to come out. The vehicle in the road one time, so obviously I have to stand up to try hold the brakes one time because I see a vehicle in front me,” explained Hector, who stressed that if he had not been observant, the garbage truck may have hit the taxi harder, turning it over.

Police are investigating.
