Police have released the name of the 13-year-old boy who died in an accident at Campaign Castle, St George yesterday.
He is Hanannia Arman Jagiel Reeves, a student of the Princess Margaret Secondary School.
According to police, Reeves was struck by a car driven by 59-year-old David Ash of Thorpes, St James. The accident occurred around 6:45 p.m.
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.
Reeves 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 19, almost double the total for 2016.
