A 13-year-old boy is this island’s 19th road fatality.
According to police, the teenager, whose name has not yet been released, was struck by a car driven by 59-year-old David Ash of Thorpes, St James. The accident occurred around 6:45 p.m., at Campaign Castle, St George.
Lawmen say preliminary investigations suggest that the victim disembarked a minibus and was attempting to cross the road in front of the minibus when he was struck by the car being driven by Ash, who was overtaking the minibus.
The teen was rushed to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital but later succumbed to his injuries.
Police are continuing investigations.
The number of road deaths so far this year is almost double the total for 2016.
