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.
