2 die in crash

By ALEXANDER BRUZUAL Friday, May 3 2013

TWO YOUNG persons are dead and two others injured following an accident during the early morning hours yesterday along the Uriah Butler Highway. The accident took place shortly after 4 am near the Divali Nagar Site.

It was reported that a Honda Civic car, with four occupants including the driver, was proceeding along the north-bound lane of the highway, when on nearing the Nagar Site, the car veered off the road and slammed into a light pole.

Two occupants, Sheldon Sanchez, 22, of Mausica Road, Arima and Jason Sebro, also of Arima, were thrown from the vehicle and onto the highway where they died. The other two, Dominic Maharaj, 17, and Kevin Steele, 21, sustained severe injuries and are warded at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex (EWMSC), Mt Hope.

A party of police officers led by Superintendent Johnny Abraham and Sgt George visited the scene and investigations are continuing. The accident led to a build-up of traffic along the highway as motorists slowed their vehicles to gape at the bodies on the side of the highway.

Acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams yesterday issued a press release advising members of the public to exercise more caution and due care while on the nation’s roadways.

“Over the past week we have observed an increase in the number of accidents occurring on the nation’s roadway and caution drivers to exercise due care and attention especially when it is raining to avoid accidents that can lead to serious injuries or fatalities,” Williams’ release stated.

The Acting Commissioner also expressed his condolences to the relatives and friends of the two persons who lost their lives in yesterday’s accident.

Williams also assured the public that the police will continue to patrol, monitor and take the appropriate action to ensure safety and good manners are practised at all times on the roadway.
