Crash claims two lives in Montego Bay

ST JAMES, Jamaica – Two men are now dead and two in hospital following a motor vehicle crash on the Ironshore main road in St James Sunday night.

The dead men have since been identified as 20-year-old Kimani Wallace and 21-year-old Ricardo Allen. Reports are that they are of Norwood addresses in the parish.

According to the police, the deceased men and another man were occupants of a Nissan Tiida motor car that was travelling towards Lilliput in the parish when there was a collision involving a Toyota Voxy travelling in the opposite direction.

All three occupants of the Tiida and the driver of the Voxy sustained injuries as a result of the collision. Firefighters had to extricate Allen and Wallace from the mangled vehicle.

Firefighters reported that the Tiida burst into flames following the impact and had to be doused before they could extricate the injured individuals.

Their deaths come as the parish records another double fatality in recent times as it relates to crashes.

On Friday April 29, two hotel employees died after the Toyota Axio they were travelling in crashed into a traffic signal on the Ironshore main road.

Just a few days later on May 2, two men, Collin Graham and Lionel Duhaney, died after the motor car they were in clipped an embankment and tore through a utility pole.
