Four Die In Longdenville Crash

Guardian.co.tt -Four men died ear­ly yes­ter­day morn­ing when the car in which they were trav­el­ling in spun out of con­trol and crashed in­to a util­i­ty pole in Long­denville.

The ac­ci­dents oc­curred at around 4 am when aux­il­iary fire of­fi­cer Ker­win Dun­can, who was dri­ving the sil­ver Toy­ota Axio, and three oth­ers were re­turn­ing from a par­ty in Ca­paro.

All four died at the scene and two of the vic­tims had to be cut out of the ve­hi­cle by fire of­fi­cers us­ing the jaws of life.

Rel­a­tives at Dun­can’s home Onyx Cir­cu­lar, Ed­in­burgh 500, Ch­agua­nas, did not want to speak to re­porters yes­ter­day, How­ev­er, a res­i­dent de­scribed him as a nice per­son and said his old­er broth­er had al­so died in an ac­ci­dent two years ago.

Front seat pas­sen­ger, 29-year-old Dwayne “DJ Frag­gle” Dick, who lived in an apart­ment op­po­site Dun­can’s home, was a front-line DJ with Blaze Con­cepts, an en­ter­tain­ment com­pa­ny. Man­ag­er of Blaze, Ri­ad Ho­sein, post­ed a con­do­lence mes­sage on Face­book and he was shocked by the news of Dick’s death.

The iden­ti­ty of the third vic­tim had not been con­firmed by the po­lice up to late yes­ter­day.

Head of Ar­rive Alive Sharon In­gle­field, ex­pressed con­do­lences to rel­a­tives of the vic­tims and ap­pealed for par­ty go­ers to des­ig­nate a sober dri­ver or call a taxi.

“Trag­ic for the moth­ers and fa­thers left be­hind to grieve, to try to make sense of some­thing that’s pre­ventable, and to some­how fill the void left be­hind,” she said.

In­gle­field said a man was killed while cross­ing the road in Waller­field yes­ter­day.

“We ap­peal to all road users to take re­spon­si­bil­i­ty for their own safe­ty since we al­so lost a pedes­tri­an at Waller­field. With Car­ni­val and late night par­ties, please des­ig­nate a sober dri­ver or call a taxi,” she said.
