Police continue to investigate highway accident that killed 3 persons

Three people lost their lives in an early morning accident on Friday. Shortly before three, around mile eleven and a quarter, two badly damaged white vehicles were left strewn across the highway after a collision. Three persons died in one of the vehicles; Police Constable Dion Makin Jr., who was driving, Ashley Williams, and Edwin Crawford. Jay Avilla and Helen Canelo of Independence Village, who were travelling in the same vehicle, were injured and so was the driver of the second vehicle, Lawrence Chow.  While it hasn’t been established what caused the accident, the police report says that Makin lost control of the car and collided into Chow’s SUV. Police Press Officer, Insp. Fitzroy Yearwood tells us the latest on the investigation into the accident:

“Will the driver of the other vehicle be served with a notice of intended prosecution, Mr. Chow?”


Insp. Fitzroy Yearwood, Police Press Officer

“As commonly done, we have to serve him with that and then at the end of the investigation, whether he was at fault or the other driver was at fault, would determine whether or not he would be charged. We have to; because there is loss of life we have to serve the driver of the other vehicle with an NIP.”
