Police Corporal Dies in Accident

Solomon Ical

A police corporal lost his life in a single vehicle traffic accident last Friday on the George Price Highway. The off-duty officer was reportedly heading home and nearing Roaring Creek when he lost control and crashed. The Police Department’s Communications Director, Assistant Superintendent Fitzroy Yearwood, shared the details this morning.

“Police received information of a fatal traffic accident at the round-about when heading towards Roaring Creek. When they got there, they saw the motionless body of Police Corporal Solomon Ical, thirty-six years old. Also on the scene, police observed a blue motorcycle, believed to be his. Initial investigations revealed that he was driving that cycle heading towards Valley of Peace when he collided into a pillar— a concrete pillar—that caused his fatal injuries. The officers have secured blood and urine samples and a toxicology report is what we are waiting for to determine whether or not alcohol may have contributed to this accident.”
