Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of two children after a car crash along the Bexon Highway, Castries.

Ferguson Donnelly, a 32-year-old resident of Barre Du Chaussee, was driving a pickup, registration number 8752, along the Bexon Highway, travelling in a southerly direction, and collided with a stationary motor truck on Tuesday October 30, 2018 about 6:20 p.m.

He was accompanied by nine-year-old Leilahi Beaubrun and three-year-old Kealeb Cotter, who also died from injuries sustained. The fourth passenger of the pickup, a six-year-old male, has since been air lifted to Martinique for medical assistance in critical condition.

Post mortem examinations are to be scheduled for subsequent dates. This incident brings the number of road fatalities recorded for the year 2018 to 21.
