MANDEVILLE, Manchester — Sixty-nine year old Fay Swaby, a housewife of Chudleigh Housing Scheme in Manchester, died as a result of injuries she received in a motor vehicle accident in Mount Olivet in the parish late Thursday.

Two other people, including the driver of the vehicle, were injured in the crash.

According to the Christiana police, the vehicle — a grey Honda Odyssey — was being reversed when the driver allegedly lost control of it, resulting in a collision with a wall.

Swaby was flung from the out-of-control vehicle which then fell on top of her. Swaby, the driver, and the other passenger were taken to hospital where the doctors declared her dead.

The other two victims remained in hospital up until late yesterday.
