A badly damaged vehicle sits on its top in the Duhaney River that runs along Mandela Highway, yesterday. It tells part of the tale of a crash that claimed one life and injured two others.
The Hunts Bay Police reported that about 5:45 am yesterday 39-year-old Winston McDonald, otherwise called Aldene Gooden, of Homestead and Waterford addresses in St Catherine was driving his Toyota Corolla motor car, when on reaching the vicinity of the Duhaney River, he reportedly lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a utility pole and a road barrier. He was flung from the vehicle and was found several feet away. He died on the spot.
His two passengers were injured and have been admitted in hospital in serious condition.
The Hunts Bay Police are investigating.
