<<< The mangled front portion of a silver Honda after it slammed into a utility pole on the Tonique Darling Highway Sunday night around 9pm. In below photo police officers inspect the back section of the vehicle located some 100 yards near a wall.
Nassau, Bahamas — It was described to us like a scene in an action movie. A silver Honda Civic racing with high speeds heading east on Tonique Darling Highway. The car had just left the QE Sports Centre with two cars trailing behind. The highway for them became the Indy 500, but the picture of a small jet attempting to takeoff runway 44 would better tell what occurred on Sunday night around 9pm.
Yes Bahamas, another young teen is fighting for his life in hospital following what can only be described as, ‘carnage left behind’.
A drag race almost ended deadly just east on the opposite side of the New Covenant Baptist Church. An eyewitness at the crash told Bahamas Press, “It is amazing to see the boy was still alive. I mean they were racing pass New Covenant Church and was approaching the stoplight just below the hill. All I saw was when the silver Honda skid off the road, shaved the side of a tree and slammed into a huge utility pole where it exploded into pieces.
“When the dust was cleared the front seat and engine went east, and the back seat and trunk went west. And the young man was pinned under the front part of the car. Man look, we had to lift the front portion of the car from off him, as he was ejected from the car. We thought he was dead when we saw how the car fell on him. It was unbelievable!”
When BP arrived to the scene of the crash, the victim was still on the ground. The accident left huge portions of Kemp Road and Fox Hill without power, and drew a large crowd of bewildered spectators. The young man was motionless with multiple fractures about his legs, which looked wobbly bent. His upper body displayed several gaping lacerations, particularly on his head. He could not remember his name, nor he was. Yet miraculously alive.
Witnesses questioned how two of the other cars in the race behind the victim quickly fled the scene after police arrived. It left spectators asking more questions, was it a race of the Bahamian Indy 500, usually seen on Sundays with flashy cars and popping motorbikes? Or was it someone being chased? That, we don’t know.
Be safe people!
