On the night of Friday (8th October), at the entrance of Sandy Point known as Romney Ground, four men lost their lives in one of the most devastating road fatalities in recent history. However, last evening (Tuesday October 19) a candle light march was held for the four residents who were of the same community.
The march which got underway at about 7:30 pm attracted close to two hundred persons, mostly family members and friends, as well as community members carrying lighted candles and singing gospels songs. For nearly an hour, traffic on the Sandy Point main road was at a halt, as the marchers walked along the island’s main road, with yellow flames burning into the night.
The march climaxed at the Sandy Point hard court where persons sang songs and gave testimonies about the four well loved residents.
A family member of one of the deceased who wished not to have their identity revealed said, “The Lord giveth and he taketh.”
“It was an unfortunate incident but we must move on and we know they are in a better place,” the family member added.
The individual also took the opportunity to warn other motorists to be cautious when driving. Speeding is not driving, they concluded.
The other occupants of the wrecked car, P 297, were Dexter ‘Govans’ James- 32, Damien Harris-23 and Lacento Bradshaw 23.
