Woman dies in toll road crash
A woman was killed in one of two motor vehicle mishaps in Kingston yesterday.
Twenty-year-old Jennelle DeSouza succumbed to injuries she received when the motor car she was driving collided into a pole and overturned along the Portmore Toll Road.
Witnesses said that DeSouza was alive after the accident occurred, but died while firefighters were attempting to cut her from the vehicle. According to one man claiming to be an eyewitness, firefighters who arrived earliest on the scene did not have the requisite tools to take the bleeding woman from the vehicle.
It was only half-an-hour later that other firefighters arrived and managed to pry her from the car.
In the second crash, which occurred along Molynes Road in St Andrew, a man and a woman were flung from the motorcycle on which they were riding when it collided with a car. That crash occurred in the vicinity of the intersection with Seaward Drive.
Both persons were taken to hospital.
The Jamaica Observer was unable to ascertain their conditions at press time.
