I am so hurt about Onika Bostic death. My 18 year old son likes her a lot.
The person that was driving said that he don't know if there was a jumbie
in the road. I think that he was the jumbie. My God, sense alone would
tell you that when it is raining the road becomes very slippery, and you
have to drive with extreme caution. I am a driver myself, and I know that
when you are driving you have to drive for yourself and any other obstacle
that might be in the way. For that car to turn over three times, tells you
all. Also they were rushing to get to another destination for her to
perform, tells you something else also. The brother had to be speeding,
and when that incident happened he lost control of the car. He should feel
100 percent responsible for that girl death. He also should stop blaming
it on the Government and the road. He need to go somewhere else with that
excuse. I am not saying that it was deliberately done, but had he been
more careful, it could of been avoided. Such a sweet and young girl had
her life taken away from her for his stupidity. Also he said that a couple
cars had accident right there after him. How come other drivers did not
have an accident. Take it from me, the brother was speeding. And that is
what is taking place in Trinidad right now. Too much death because of
speeding. Just imagine, I think that for the year there are about 186 road
That is madness.
