85-y-o Woman Died in Head-on Crash in the Bog Walk Gorge
An 85-year-old woman was killed in a nasty motor vehicle crash in the Bog Walk Gorge in St Catherine on Wednesday.
The deceased has been identified as Imogene Hamilton of Buena Vista, Linstead, St Catherine.
Reports are that at about 11:00 p.m., a 2001 white Toyota Town Ace motor truck that was being driven by a 63-years-old farmer of Buena Vista, and a white Isuzu motor truck, were travelling in opposite directions along the Bog Walk Gorge.
On reaching the vicinity of ‘Ribbits corner’, the driver of the Isuzu motor truck reportedly failed to keep to the left of the roadway and ended up in the path of the Toyota Town Ace, causing a head-on collision, resulting in the Isuzu motor truck plunging into the riverbed.
Hamilton, who was one of four passengers in the Toyota Town Ace, received injuries and was taken to the Linstead Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The other persons who sustained injuries were admitted to the hospital.
