  1. Was it the accident on the highway in the vicinity of Freeport on Sunday afternoon? I’m asking because a green Baleno vehicle crossed the median whilst heading north and crashed head on into my brother’s vehicle heading south nearly killing him. Not sure why there is such secrecy around the accident.

  2. Well of course stupidity isn’t life threatening ‍♂️

    It is my sincere wish that David recovers from this accident. Health of the body and mind are the top priorities behind, the soul’s; and I wish DJW the best in all three!
