Twenty-two-year-old Caroline Riverol from Carmelita was knocked down by a truck. Riverol was walking across the highway when she was hit by the truck whose driver continued on his way. Police are investigating.

“Police were called to an area between mile forty-four and forty-five on the Phillip Goldson Highway where upon arrival, they saw the motionless body of a female later identified to be Caroline Riverol, twenty two years old, in the middle of the high way. Our investigation so far is that she probably was in the process of crossing the highway when she was knocked down by a truck which failed to stop. At this time we do not any concrete lead as to where that vehicle might be so we are seeking the public’s assistance in this matter in order to try resolve this issue of the accident.”
