St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Twenty-eight-year-old Jimmy Jules of St. Paul’s was pronounced dead at the scene of a vehicular accident on Saturday (September 12) by the District Medical Officer.
The accident involved a motor truck P8191, operated by its owner Vincent Richards of Cayon, and a motorcycle licensed P9391, operated by its owner O’Neil Doyling of Saddlers.
Police report that at about 4:40 p.m. on September 12, Richards was traveling along the Island Main Road from Saddlers to St. Paul’s.
While driving in the vicinity of the public bath, Doyling reportedly came out of a side road next to the bath directly in front of the truck and continued driving.
However, to avoid a collision, Richards swerved to the right and lost control of the vehicle causing it to run into a nearby shed and flip on its side.
The deceased, Jimmy Jules, who was seated in the bed of the truck was flung from the vehicle.
Apart from Jules, there were four other passengers along with Richards who were taken to the Joseph N France General Hospital via ambulance.
Maverick Morris of St. Paul’s sustained a broken arm and was treated and discharged along with Richards and another passenger. Akimba Francis of St. Paul’s and Omar Browne of Dieppe Bay remain warded at the hospital with bruises about their bodies.
Doyling, the driver of the motorbike is still being sought by Police and is asked to report to the Dieppe Bay Police Station or the nearest police station.
