MONTEGO BAY, St James — VETERAN newspaper vendor Errol Fraser yesterday succumbed to injuries he sustained following a motor vehicle accident on Tuesday along Tate Street in Montego Bay.

Reports are that about 7:00 am Fraser was driving his Toyota Corolla station wagon motor car along Tate Street when the vehicle got out of control and crashed into a utility pole.

The 63 -year-old newspaper vendor who was taken to hospital for treatment, died early yesterday while undergoing treatment.

Fraser's wife Claudette yesterday described her husband as a peaceful and loving person, who always reassured her that "everything will be okay".

"He was so kind, so peaceful, so loving. He never wanted me to ever worry about anything and he would always say: everything is going to be okay, don't worry," she said.

She added that her husband was a dedicated worker.

"Errol dedicated his life to his job, he never put anything before his work, not even his family," she said, as she wept openly.

Fraser served the Jamaica Observer Montego Bay Branch for 19 years as a newspaper vendor.

He is survived by Claudette, children Sharon, Richard, Oneil, Bermadeen, and step-children Dayvine, Shakira, Jermaine and Sheldon.
