3 road-related deaths in 4 days

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – This country yesterday recorded its second road fatality this year, the third road-related death over a four-day period.

Lemore Pierre died at the Milton Cato Memorial hospital (MCMH) around 6 p.m. yesterday, succumbing to injuries he sustained when he was struck by a vehicle in Layou on Jan. 28.

Pierre’s death came four days after Jex Henville, 53, of Fitz Hughes, who was also struck by the same vehicle, died after being taken off life support at the MCMH on Thursday.

Last Friday, Gweneth Andrews, an employee at the Bridges Roads and General Services Authority, died at the Stubbs Health Centre after a car in which she was travelling was involved in an accident with a minivan on the Prospect Highway.

Andrews did not sustain any obvious injuries during the accidents but had hypertension, according to information reaching I-Witness News.

Henville and Pierre were struck by a motor vehicle driven by Glenroy Bobb of Questelles in which Bobb’s wife and child were also travelling.

The men were standing on the Layou main road when the vehicle struck them. They sustained injuries to the head and neck.

The occupants of the vehicle, which included a toddler, also sustained various injuries.
