Ladyville Resident Killed in Accident on Dark Stretch of Highway

There was a fatal accident in Ladyville Village on Friday night. Reports are that just before nine p.m. Delwan Abraham was driving from Ladyville to Sandhill when he knocked down Elias Vellos.  The victim was transported to the K.H.M.H., but pronounced dead upon arrival. While police continues to investigate this tragedy, there are also concerns that the area where Vellos was hit, between miles nine and ten on the Phillip Goldson Highway, is poorly lit and a danger to motorists and pedestrians at night.

“In front of Rodla Construction Company, police responded to a scene where they saw the motionless body of a Hispanic male person. Initial investigation revealed that Dylan Abraham was driving from the direction of Ladyville to Sandhill village when upon reaching that area; he hit Elias from behind and off his bicycle, causing his fatal injuries. He was seen with head and body injuries. He was transported to the KHMH, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. N.IP has been served. I am not certain if he has submitted any blood and alcohol sample. I will have to get back to the investigators, and then I can pass that to you. The road itself is made with that hot mix that is very dark at night. The lighting on that side of the highway is almost next to impossible. I know that the road itself isn’t properly marked or reflectors for you to stay on your side. It is unfortunate that someone lost their life. But, I hope this will prompt some form of improvement, when it comes to the lighting, especially between the Lord’s Bank Junction and the Burrell Boom Junction.”
