Booster Shot: Four Slaughter Arts Artistes Survive Car Crash

People! Be careful on the roads out there!

A group of four St. Lucian soca artistes got into a single vehicle accident en route to Choissieul for the launch of rural carnival celebrations in the South. The cause of the accident is uncertain, however, the driver Jose Torso and all three passengers sustained non life threatening injuries.

Thankfully everyone is more or less alright, but it still sounds like a pretty bloody scene to me! Don Perry walked away with deep cuts to the face. Poor Kakle broke his arms in two places. Jose Torso has cuts over his body and injured fingers, while Nigel Nicholas sustained minor wounds.

The whole ordeal was upsetting for the artistes. Seems like the guys had to deal with nurses far less friendly than yours truly.

The hospital nurses never cleaned us up. I had to ask if they would. One of the female doctors said, ‘the sink is at the end.’ Then i said, ‘isn’t there like a alcohol pad I can get at least?’ Then she brought me three. I had blood on me. Jose went to the health center today to get his cuts cleaned in Castries.

The details of the incident are fuzzy, but to answer what I know you're all asking, I'm told that nobody was drinking.

Well speaking of booze anywayzzz, have you heard the Campari Riddim? That just happens to be the big project out of the Slaughter Arts camp that features each of the artistes who are recovering from the accident (plus a few more).

Check it out below:

Get well soon guys! Hope to catch you all healthy and strong by the time I reach St. Lucia.

Love and Soca,

Nurse Karen
