Original Post: Barbados records another road fatality on Easter Sunday
One family has not awakened to the feelings of renewal or anticipation Easter Sunday and the start of a new month can bring.
Instead, they have been thrown into mourning after the death of their loved one.
Public relations officer with the Royal Barbados Police Force, Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss, confirmed that police are on the scene investigating an accident at Four Roads, St John, which left one man dead:
"Sometime around minutes to three this morning, the first of April, police received a report of a serious accident.
"On responding, we recognised two mangled motor cars. Ambulances responded and took both drivers for medical attention at the QEH - a front seat passenger in one of the vehicles died on the spot, a 41-year-old male."
He also urged motorists to use an alternative route at this time:
"Persons are advised to avoid the area as it is cordoned off and traffic is restricted."
More details to come.
