Taxi / bus in Marigot bay: details of the gendarmerie


On June 22, 2019, around 13 pm, a “Taxi” minibus  Van type registered in the Dutch part is parked in the parking lot of the port of Marigot facing the sea and in the immediate vicinity of the water…

While wishing to leave his location with 14 passengers on board, the driver - presumably - commits  a driving error when operating the forward gear. The vehicle falls into the shallow waters of the port.

Passengers and the driver get out of the water thanks to the intervention of passers-by who are nearby.

Two wounded were transported in serious condition following the absorption of water to the hospital center. The thirteen others are also evacuated to the hospital for check-ups.

The investigation entrusted to the gendarmerie of Marigot continues. The alcohol and drug tests on the driver were negative.
