Taxi operator dies in St. Thomas crash

A taxi operator died following a motor vehicle crash in St. Thomas  evening.

He has been identified as 32 year-old Christopher Brown of Market Road in Yallahs.

According to the police, shortly after 6 o'clock, Mr. Brown was driving his white Toyota Corolla station wagon motor car along the Yallahs to Lloyds main road.

He attempted to cross the single lane bridge near the intersection with Logwood main road, however, another vehicle travelling in the opposite direction was already on the bridge.

In an effort to avoid a collision, he applied his brakes but lost control of the car which went over into the riverbed and landed on its top.

Mr. Brown was seriously injured and was assisted from the vehicle by passersby.

He was pronounced dead at hospital.

In the meantime, residents who were at the scene of Tuesday's crash in St. Thomas say the death could have been prevented if the bridge had guard rails.

They are calling for their political representatives to quickly remedy the situation.
