Malabar man dies in Tobago's first road fatality
Kevon Williams, 25, of Daniel Trace, Malabar, Arima, became Tobago's first road fatality for the year, following a four-car smash-up on Monday evening.
According to police reports, around 9.15 p.m., a silver Nissan B-14, driven by 47-year-old Simon Scotland, of Inn Road, Castara, was at a standstill facing west, at the Gulf City Lowlands Mall intersection on the Claude Noel Highway, when a white Mitsubishi panel van, driven by Williams, overtook a line of vehicles and collided with the B-14.
Williams was a maintenance technician employed with Pizza Boys.
Scotland's vehicle then slammed into a grey Nissan X-Trail driven by Cynthia Grant, of Bon Accord, and a silver Nissan B-15, driven by Lloyd Lashley, 46, of Top Hill, Mason Hall, police said.
Williams' van subsequently overturned several times, and he was thrown from the vehicle and pinned underneath it on the roadway.
Scotland and Lashley were carried to the Scarborough Regional Hospital where they were medically examined and dis- charged.
Grant remains warded on the female surgical ward in a stable condition.
Acting Corporal Kwesi McDonald of the Old Grange Police Station is spearheading investigations into the incident. –Elizabeth Williams
